On Saturday, February 1st, The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness will be hosting the 3rd Annual celebrating everyBODY: a walk for eating disorders awareness in Boca Raton, Florida. My colleagues and I are excited to join in what is sure to be an inspirational and beautiful morning! We are walking to support those working towards recovery, to promote awareness of eating disorders, and to spread the message of hope and recovery. We are also walking to show that we care, to break the silence, to challenge the shame, and to offer hope.
This annual walk is a reminder of the power of hope, community, and connection in the recovery process. It calls us to get out and show up for the individuals and families that have lost hope and are suffering. It calls us to be advocates outside of our offices. On a personal level, the walk reminds me of the incredible strength and courage of those that struggle with eating disorders and those that support them in their recovery. This is an event that unifies the community and empowers individuals to believe recovery is possible.
The event will be held at The Pond Apple Pavilion, South County Regional Park in Boca Raton, Florida this Saturday, February 1st. Registration begins at 9:00am and the walk starts at 9:30am. We hope that you will join us at the walk and join our team —“Team OPC”! Click here to register.
Thank you to our team contributor, Primary Therapist Jamie Blosser Morris, MS, LMHC for her coordination of this awesome event within the OPC community! Make sure to say “Hi” when you see her and all of our “Team OPC” participants on Saturday.
