Remuda Ranch is proud to be a Platinum sponsor and partner of NEDA for 2012.
In continuing our mission to raise the much-needed awareness of eating disorders, we are inviting you to join with us on February 26th as Remuda Ranch takes part in the Phoenix NEDA walk. If you'd like to sponsor our team or contribute to the cause, please visit the Team Remuda Ranch page here.
As the National Eating Disorders Awareness Week celebrates it's 25th Anniversary, make sure to spend February 26 - March 3, 2012 doing whatever you can to bring attention, assistance, and education to those in your community regarding eating disorders.
This year's NEDAwareness Week theme is "Everybody Knows Somebody" because awareness of eating disorders is certainly spreading. Last year, NEDAwareness Week registrants spanned all 50 states and 29 other countries. We hope to have another record-breaking year in 2012, and have everyone commit to doing just one thing!
The aim of NEDAwareness Week is to ultimately prevent eating disorders and body image issues while reducing the stigma surrounding eating disorders and improving access to treatment. Eating disorders are serious, life-threatening illnesses - not choices - and it's important to recognize the pressures, attitudes and behaviors that shape the disorder.
NEDAwareness Week is a collective effort of primary volunteers, including eating disorder professionals, health care providers, students, educators, social workers, and individuals committed to raising awareness of the dangers surrounding eating disorders and the need for early intervention and treatment.
This year, NEDA is once again asking everyone to do just one thing to help raise awareness and provide accurate information about eating disorders. NEDAwareness Week participants can choose from a huge range of ways to contribute: Distribute info pamphlets and put up posters, write one letter for Media Watchdogs, register as a Volunteer Speaker or host a Volunteer Speaker, post information on Facebook or arrange interactive and educational activities such as a meditation and yoga event, panel discussions, fashion shows, body fairs, movie screenings, art exhibits and more. As an official NEDAwareness Week participant you can be involved in ay way that works with your schedule, resources, community, and interests. These events and activities are vital to attracting public media attention - on local, national and international levels.
At Remuda Ranch we know that eating disorders are treatable and that recovery is possible. This is why we devote ourselves to raising awareness and participating in educational initiatives all-year-round. We are proud of the thousands of individuals that we have helped to reach their goal of recovery.
