Dina zeckhausen's Fundraiser:

Team "What's Eating Katie?"

THE STORY:

Merrick’s Walk for EDIN is a 2.7 mile walk around Chastain Park to raise awareness of eating disorders, remember those who have lost their battle with an eating disorder, and raise funds for the Eating Disorders Information Network (EDIN) and its prevention programs in schools and the community of Atlanta. The event began in 2001 in honor of Merrick Ryan, a 19-year old Galloway alum who died from complications of anorexia.

I formed the "What's Eating Katie?" team to invite all of my friends and family to participate.  What's Eating Katie?" is the musical I wrote to address the issue for teens, college students, faculty and parents to address these issues. I also invite all of the those who've participated in the musical to come walk (and sing: "We've been part of the problem, so let's be the solution!"  Come on, now you have that song in your head...:) Through acting, music and dance, you've already reached thousands of people. This walk is a way to bring together cast and crew members (and their family and friends) from middle & high schools, colleges and the Alliance Theater summer camp to help fight eating disorders once again.   Please register to be part of my team and make an even bigger impact by raising money to help EDIN fight eating disorders! 

This year, the theme for Merrick’s Walk for EDIN is “more than a number.” The meaning of this theme is twofold. Statistics about deaths resulting from eating disorders, although shocking, can be impersonal and allow us to feel detached from the issue. We want to make it known that individuals like Merrick are more than a statistic. The theme also promotes the idea that in such a health- and weight-conscious society, we are more than our measurements, our weight, or the calories that we consume. Our value cannot be defined by a number.

Thank you for your support!
