EVENT DATE: Aug 01, 2012
With this fundraiser, it is my hope that we can send one teenager to a five-day intensive program, for the treatment of an eating disorder. The individual I wish to send has made tremendous progress in her recovery, and this element is essential to her continued healing. The retreat will incorporate physical, emotional, and spiritual elements; all necessary components of recovery. My goal is to eventually develop a non-profit organization, and scholarship fund for those in Kentucky who have difficulty finding, and paying for treatment. Kentucky happens to be very limited with access to treatment when it comes to eating disorders; and the cost of treatment is high. It is my hope that we can change this in Kentucky.
