THE STORY:

Team "Ride the Spiral" is Robert Pugh, Chris Deubert and Erin Gaffey.

In support of our efforts to run the New York City Marathon (Robert's first, Chris' fifth and Erin's third), Ride the Spiral is asking its friends and family to help raise money for the National Eating Disorder Assocation ("NEDA"), based in New York City.  NEDA is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting individuals and families affected by eating disorders. NEDA campaigns for prevention, improved access to quality treatment, and increased research funding to better understand and treat eating disorders.

We have chosen to raise money for NEDA to bring attention to debilitating illnesses that affect far more people than is often realized or admitted. Eating disorders paralyze people's ability to enjoy life and participate in the activities that most people take for granted.  Moreover, eating disorders are often accompanied with other disorders and illnesses, such as depression and exercise addiction.  There is no cure for an eating disorder - a person can only learn to manage the disorder. Yet, insurance often does not cover the costs of treatment.  Anyone who intends to raise children should be aware of the social pressures that often accompany and precipitate a lifelong battle with eating disorders.

We intend to bring a voice the victims of eating disorders who far too often remain silent.

According to NEDA and the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders:

  • Up to 24 million people of all ages and genders suffer from an eating disorder (anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder) in the United States.
  • An estimated 10-15% of people with anorexia or bulimia are male.
  • Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness.
  • 20% of people suffering from anorexia will prematurely die from complications related to their eating disorder, including suicide and heart problems.
  • 40% of Americans either suffered or have known someone who has suffered from an eating disorder.
  • Anorexia is the third most common chronic illness among adolescents.
  • Over 50% of teenage girls and nearly one-third of teenage boys use unhealthy weight control behaviors such as skipping meals, fasting, smoking cigarettes, vomiting, and taking laxatives.
  • Research dollars spent on anorexia averaged $.70 per affected individual, compared to over $159.00 per affected individual for schizophrenia.
