Are You Ready for the NYC NEDA Walk?

This year's NYC NEDA Walk is shaping up to be a great time. Join us on October 5th!

We'll be walking across the Brooklyn Bridge to raise awareness and funds to support the mission of the National Eating Disorders Association. Do you care about eating disorder prevention, research and education? Do you want to live in a world where all young people feel confident in their bodies and proud of who they are? Sign up to walk with us!

Big thanks to our 2014 NYC NEDA Walk sponsors, including Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, ABC 7 and aerie, whose #aeriereal campaign targets 15-21-year-olds with ads featuring models who have not been retouched. We're super excited that aerie will be donating space on its Times Square billboard to promote NEDA--and Proud2Bme! 

Not in NYC? Not a problem. Check the national NEDA Walks schedule to find out about walks near you.
