We are a STRONG advocate for people having a healthy body image. Eating disorders are an epidemic affecting both women and men today. Many in our own community have fought with these demons and we want them to know that we are standing behind them in the fight to end eating disorders worldwide.
Strongfigure contributor, April Harper, is doing her part to fight this battle by participating in a National Eating Disorder Association Walk:
|Dear Family and Friends,There are currently over 30 million Americans who struggle with eating disorders, and this number has been growing over the past two decades. In spite of this, eating disorder research continues to be under-funded, insurance coverage for treatment is inadequate and societal pressures to be thin remain rampant.I’m writing you to ask for your support in my participation in the Orlando, FL NEDA Walk. You can help me reach my fundraising goal for the walk by clicking here, selecting the Orlando, FL NEDA Walk, and clicking ‘Donate’.Your participation and support goes a long way!
You can also register to walk with me on the Orlando, FL NEDA Walk website! Be sure to tell your family, friends, classmates, coworkers and members of your local community to join in the fight against eating disorders!
Thank you for your time and support.
|I do not personally have an eating disorder but love to support others and so can you!
