The National Eating Disorder Association is celebrating this year's awareness week with the theme, Every Body To Have A Seat at the Table. This year's theme is an outstanding way to bring marginalized voices and communities to the table as we discuss eating disorder awareness and prevention.

Join us for our Awareness Fundraiser

Every February the National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) spearheads the national effort to increase awareness of eating disorders and the impact eating disorders have on individuals and loved ones. You may have seen efforts or even participated in previous awareness events such as the annual NEDA walk in October. The Eating Disorder Coalition of Iowa (EDCI) is proud to host an awareness fundraiser with a focus on purposeful rest. We are turning the traditional “awareness walk” on its head with a team-based event we call Eating Disorder Awareness (Not a) Walk Fundraiser or #notawalk for short.  We hope you join us in spreading our message of exercise compassion for this year's event!
