Merrick’s Walk in an annual event hosted by EDIN that started in memory of Merrick Ryan, who died in 2000 from complications of anorexia at the age of 19 years old. Merrick was an alum of Galloway School and was a freshman at Bates College in Maine when she passed away. She had talents and passions and dreams, and she was treasured by those who knew and loved her.
Team Norrie will be walking for the recovery of Norrie, an eleven year old girl battling anorexia nervosa. She is lucky to have parents who sought medical attention early enough to save her life because they did not ignore the signs and symptoms of an eating disorder. Help us to raise awareness of eating disorders by joining Team Norrie at Merrick's Walk on October 25. All proceeds go to the Eating Disorders Information Network (EDIN).
