Thank you for visiting the team fundraising page for Opalescence!
Did you know that 30 million men and women will suffer from an eating disorder in their lifetimes? Or that eating disorders receive less than $1 in research dollars per affected person compared to an average of $70 for other major mental health diseases? This is one of the many reasons that we are coming together to participate in a NEDA Walk to benefit the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA).
NEDA is a nonprofit organization that provides lifesaving programs and services to individuals and families affected by eating disorders. NEDA is dedicated to erasing the stigma surrounding eating disorders, promoting positive body image and discouraging dangerous diet behaviors.
Team Opalescence is made up of people who are currently in recovery, have recovered, or know and love someone who has been affected by an eating disorder. We are passionate about doing all that we can to stop the spread of the insidiously destructive and even deadly mental illnesses that eating disorders are. But to do that we need your help.
We are asking for your support to help reach our team fundraising goal. Donating to our fundraising page is a way for you to not only show your support for us, but also to show your support for the millions of individuals and families affected by eating disorders.
Your contribution will help fund NEDA’s national Helpline, National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, NEDA Navigators and countless other lifesaving programs.
Any amount you can contribute will make a difference in the fight against eating disorders. With your help, we are one step closer to our fundraising goal.
You can also help by forwarding this page to anyone you think might want to support the cause with us!
Thank you so much for your support! We can’t do this without you!
