Fairhaven Sponsors Memphis NEDA Walk 2016April 1st, 2016

Every year across the nation, hundreds of cities round up and participate in the National Eating Disorder Organization by hosting walks in their city. The National Eating Disorders Association's vision is to eliminate eating disorders globally by promoting positive body image and self-esteem and by discouraging dieting behaviors, drive for thinness, and body dissatisfaction. NEDA is recognized and supported by sufferers, families, health care professionals and educators throughout the world.

Our staff at Fairhaven participated in a NEDA Walk Memphis, hosted by Rhodes College,  because we care about the cause and believe in NEDA's programs.  We, as a treatment center that specializes in the treatment of eating disorders, and the community as a whole, are able to spread the word about NEDA and eating disorders with the confidence that we will feel embraced by our loved ones.  This was a great community-building experience. Fairhaven was proud to participate and sponsor this event, bringing about awareness and education to our very own community.  Here are a few shots from the walk: luminaries created by Fairhaven clients that paved the path and Fairhaven mascot "Buddy" with his new Rhodes friend "Molly". Thank you so much for your support, and a BIG thank you to everyone that joined us and helped through fundraising...it was a very good day!
