Mission Statement

NEDA supports individuals and families affected by eating disorders, and serves as a catalyst for prevention, cures, and access to quality care.

Description

Quickly growing since 2009, NEDA Walks now bring together over 25,000 people of all ages and backgrounds to fight eating disorders.

NEDA Walks are inspirational, community-building events where passionate walkers raise money to fund eating disorders education, prevention, and support, as well as advocacy and research initiatives. The largest eating disorders awareness events in the nation, NEDA Walks are a celebration of hope and strength, filled with body-positive activities, motivational guest speakers, and a short walk to symbolize unity in the fight against eating disorders.

NEDA Walks create a safe and supportive space where no one will feel alone in their battle. It seems as though everybody knows somebody who’s been affected by an eating disorder - so everybody is invited to walk with us! Together, we’ll stand up to stigma and send the message that recovery is possible.
