        National Eating Disorders Association Presents the 7th Annual New Jersey NEDA Walk in Verona

In 2023, more than 50 cities across the nation return in-person to raise awareness for eating disorders.

The National Eating Disorders Association(NEDA) organizes the 7th annual New Jersey NEDA Walk in Verona on May 7, 2023 at Verona Park. NEDA Walks spread awareness about the realities of eating disorders and build supportive, local communities of hope, strength, and recovery.

In the United States alone, 30 million individuals will suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some point in their life, such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. Money raised from the walk will help fund the NEDA Helpline and other vital programs focused on prevention, cures and access to quality care. 

The NEDA Helpline has seen a 107% increase in the volume of calls, texts, and chats since the beginning of COVID. “This unprecedented need for support inspires all of us in the community to come together, in unity, to ensure that no one faces these complex and pervasive disorders alone,” says Liz Thompson, CEO of NEDA. “We are so thankful for our active, engaged, dynamic community. Over the course of 2022, we will be activating in more than 50 communities across the United States, building community through programs and initiatives ensuring that everyone has access to the support they deserve. When we connect, we thrive. Join us as we come one step closer to a world without eating disorders!” 

Learn how you can join tens of thousands of passionate walkers, participating in-person or virtually, across the country to make a difference in the fight against eating disorders!
