BENEFITING: The Eating Disorders Information Network, Inc.
EVENT: Merrick's Walk for EDIN 2015
EVENT DATE: Oct 25, 2015
Help raise awareness and money for those who suffer from eating disorders. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental disorder, and only 1 in 10 people will recieve treatment for it. In my own experience, I have learned that treatment is extremely expensive and insurance only covers so much of it for so long. As a result, patients in these centers are released before they are ready to claim a full recovery.
I have been in recovery for a little over a year now. I was so fortunate to have the support of my friends and family, and the means to recieve a full treatment at an amazing program. However, for so many, this is not even a possiblity.
Please help support me in raising money for those who need help in fighting this battle. You can either show your support by walking or make a donation. Every cent counts! For more information, please visit the websites below.
