The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) is waging a battle against eating disorders and unrealistic “body perfect” ideals. To raise funds, spread awareness about the seriousness of eating disorders and support the local community, NEDA is holding its fifth annual Charlottesville NEDA Walk, themed NEDA Walk. Save a Life. Funds from the walk will be used to support NEDA’s education and advocacy programs.
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, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, or an eating disorder not otherwise specified (EDNOS). Anorexia nervosa has the highest fatality rate of any mental illness. But there is hope and there is help!
