According to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa & Associated Disorders, eating disorders have one of the highest mortality rates of any mental illness, making it crucial to raise awareness and support those affected. The Kahm Center is proud to sponsor this year's NEDA Walk in Burlington, an event aimed at raising awareness and funds for individuals and families impacted by eating disorders.
The walk takes place on Sunday, April 30th, with registration beginning at 10:00 AM at Main Street Landing. The walk will officially begin at 11:00 AM.
By sponsoring the NEDA Walk in Burlington, we hope to create a positive impact on our community and encourage conversation about the challenges faced by those with eating disorders.
