River Centre Foundation hosts 7th annual walk for eating disorder awareness

Written by Healthy Living News. Posted in May

The River Centre Foundation will hold its 7th Annual Bridge to Recovery Walk on Saturday, June 10, 2017 at the River Centre Foundation House, 5445 Main Street, Sylvania. The focus of this event is to create awareness of eating disorders, which affect more than 30 million Americans.  Included in the event is a one-mile walk that symbolizes the steps that are taken in the recovery process to move forward and inspire others, while sharing that eating disorders are dangerous illnesses and not a life choice. Participants will gather at the River Centre Foundation house then walk through the beautiful Harroun Community Park and end back at the Foundation house.

 

The theme for this year’s walk is “Live Life Fully” and is a celebration of recovery and honors our strength in overcoming obstacles. There will be music, speak outs, a silent auction, a raffle, a cookout, and plenty of fun! Day-of registration begins at 9:00 a.m., and the walk begins at 10:00 a.m. Online registration is available and can be found by visiting www.rivercentrefoundation.org. Included in the cost of registration is a walk t-shirt, long-sleeve shirt or sweatshirt, as well as lunch. The event is open to the public.

Funds raised each year from the walk help support the work of the River Centre Foundation’s mission of providing a better understanding of the causes and treatments of eating disorders through evidence-based research, professional training, education, and advocacy.
