Join Us For The 3rd Annual "Virtual Walk"

The Dates: February 24 - March 2, 2013
The Event: Join us for a fun, interactive, week-long "virtual walk" social media campaign to raise awareness and funds to support individuals and families affected by eating disorders.
The Cause: NEDAwareness Week 2013
The Goal: 100% of proceeds from this meaningful and empowering week-long fundraising effort will support the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) and MentorCONNECT. Both organizations are registered as nonprofit within section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code.

  1. Choose Your Giving Level ($13 registration fee is all it takes to join and participate!)
  2. Prepare your invitation.
  3. Make a list of ways you can "walk" online (consider blogs, Facebook, Twitter, websites, and other online places where you regularly connect with friends, family, peers, and colleagues).
  4. On February 24, 2013, launch your campaign by posting your message everywhere you go online!
  5. PS. Keep going all week! The campaign ends on March 2, 2013!
