Press release from Carolina Resource Center for Eating Disorders:
Carolina Resource Center for Eating Disorders (CRC for ED) is hosting a viewing of their 6th Annual Awareness & Fundraising Breakfast. This virtual showing will take place on Thursday, May 12th at 7:30 am and will include a recording from their live, invitation-only, event earlier in the week. The one-hour program is designed to raise awareness about eating disorders and the services CRC for ED provides while inspiring support for their organization.
Everybody knows somebody and this year the nonprofit will speak to the secrecy, silence, and shame of disordered eating and eating disorders, and the importance of community and connection for those impacted by these life-threatening illnesses. Eating disorders have the second-highest mortality rate of any mental illness, with 1 death every 52 minutes occurring in the U.S. as a direct result of an eating disorder. Since mid-2018, the Asheville-based resource and referral organization has experienced a significant increase in its Helpline and support groups with numbers doubling and with a reach well beyond WNC. “CRC for ED works to shine the light on eating, exercise, and body image issues… to develop and connect resources to assist and advocate for those impacted by eating disorders. We are committed to the awareness, early intervention, increasing hope and access to care, and we would love for you to spend this hour with us,” says Simone Seitz, Executive Director.
Please see www.crcfored.com/events to RSVP and feel free to invite others you know who may benefit from learning about eating disorders and CRC for ED’s services. RSVPs for the virtual link end at 5 pm on May 11th.
Carolina Resource Center for Eating Disorders is the only nonprofit in NC dedicated to providing education, resources, and support to individuals, families, and professionals concerned with disordered eating and recovery from eating disorders.
