National Eating Orders Association (NEDA) Walk Notre Dame

Sat Apr 27, 2019 11:00AM - 1:00PM

The Notre Dame, IN NEDA Walk is on Saturday, April 27th from 11am-1pm at the University of Notre Dame - South Quad (110 Corby Drive, Notre Dame, IN 46556).
 
The Notre Dame Walk will be an incredible morning of raising awareness and funds for eating disorder programs, education outreach, and the support of individuals and families. We want to build community, inspire activism, and work with a diverse group of individuals that support NEDA’s goals and interests. We have a phenomenal line-up of speakers and presenters.
 
We would greatly appreciate help recruiting as many volunteers as possible before the Walk, Walker/Volunteers the morning of the Walk, and Walkers. It is critical to connect with as many students, faculty, and staff as possible because 30 million people suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some time in their life and eating disorders are widespread across college campuses. This would be a fantastic opportunity to stand with students affected by eating disorders and foster necessary dialogue about eating disorders on campus.
 
Here is more information that may help you spread the word: 
 
 
Before the Walk, we appreciate all assistance promoting on college campuses; reaching out to friends, org leaders, athletic teams, and professors helps our cause immensely. You can also spread the word by announcing the event in classes, creating a Facebook event with your peers, or sharing the Walk Page (https://nedawalk.org/notredame2019) and the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/events/315820175679797/)! 
 
On the day of the Walk, we also need volunteers. Our program requires that volunteers register as Walker/Volunteers, rather than just solely volunteers. We have a fantastic program planned and it is a great way to celebrate your thoughtful work after volunteering during set-up/registration.
 
If you want to make a Team, you will need to assign a Team Captain to register first. Then everyone else can join your team, and your fundraising efforts will be recognized as a group as well as individually. The link to register as either a Walker or Walker/Volunteer is: https://nedawalk.org/registerYou are strongly encouraged to share your fundraising/team/personal page to Facebook as it is an effective way to collect donations and spread the word!
