2017 NEDA Walk With TRUECares
Join TRUE Model Management as we participate in the 2017 NEDA Walk.
In the United States, 20 million women and 10 million men suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some time in their life, including Anorexia Nervosa (AN), Bulimia Nervosa (BN), Binge Eating Disorder (BED), or an Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder (OSFED). Yet the severity of eating disorders remains to be misunderstood and swept under the rug. What many people fail to realize is that eating disorders are serious illnesses, not lifestyle choices, with anorexia maintaining the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. In a national survey, four out of ten people reported that they either suffer, have suffered, or know someone who has suffered from an eating disorder. This is a number that needs to be significantly reduced, but there is a significant lack of funding to combat eating disorders and their devastating consequences. NEDA, the National Eating Disorders Association, supports individuals and families affected by eating disorders and serves as a catalyst for prevention, cures, and access to quality care and support. NEDA envisions a world where eating disorders are not only taboo, but they’re completely nonexistent.
Will You Join Us?
On Sunday, October 1, 2017, TRUE Model Management will be participating in the NEDA Walk to support the fight against eating disorders, and we’d love for you to join TRUEcares and walk alongside us! By joining TRUEcares, you will be supporting our effort as well as the thousands of people who rely on NEDA’s programs and resources every day.
Since 2009, NEDA Walks have been bringing communities together nationwide in the fight against eating disorders. NEDA Walks raise funds for NEDA’s lifesaving programs that help thousands of people every day. If you can’t make the walk itself, we ask for your support to help us reach our team fundraising goal. Donating to our fundraising page is a way for you to not only show your support to us, but also to show your support to the millions of individuals and families affected by eating disorders. Your contribution will help fund NEDA’s national Helpline, National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, NEDA Navigators, and countless other lifesaving programs. Any amount you can contribute will make a difference in the fight against eating disorders. With your help, we are one step closer to our fundraising goal.
