Bradley Supports Those Suffering from Eating Disorders Through Annual Fundraising Walk

April 1, 2022

Did you know 9% of the U.S. population, or 28.8 million Americans, suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their lifetime, according to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders? Bradley University is making efforts to support those who have been affected by an eating disorder and raise awareness through its annual National Eating Disorders Association Walk.

This 1-mile walk will take place tomorrow, April 2, and check-in starts at 8:30 a.m. on Bradley's Alumni Quad. Those who walk and donate will help raise critical funds that support research, programs and more. Additionally, they will be a part of fighting the stigma surrounding eating disorders by forming a united community focused on spreading hope and recovery.

A ceremony will begin at 9 a.m., and the walk starts immediately afterward. To register for participation and a free T-shirt, visit Registration onsite is also available. Donations are encouraged but not required.

Some media in Bradley University's current print, video and online materials was acquired before the COVID-19 pandemic. Media acquired after the pandemic began was done so in compliance with Bradley's COVID-19 safety protocols at the time. The ongoing safety of our faculty, staff and students is of the utmost concern during these unprecedented times.
