WASHINGTON – Student-athletes from the Georgetown field hockey team, along with Head Coach Shannon Soares and newly-named Assistant Coach Shelly Montgomery, participated in the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) walk on Sunday, April 27 in Washington, D.C. The team and other participants walked on the National Mall to raise funds and awareness for the NEDA.
The D.C. NEDA walk raised about $40,000 with seven groups raising over $1,000 each and five individual participants raising over $1,200. Montgomery served as the captain for a fundraising team, Road2Recover, which raised close to $3,000.
Montgomery served as one of the committee members for the D.C. NEDA walk. She was involved with the planning and logistics for the walk.
“There is still much to be done to ensure our female student-athletes are putting the care into their bodies that they need and deserve,” said Montgomery. “The Georgetown field hockey team was part of this celebration of recovery and ongoing battle to help women realize their worth is not in a number on a scale or the size of their uniform.”
"I'm very proud of this group for taking the time to support Shelly's efforts with the NEDA,” said Soares. “It was great to see the Hoya family among those walking to raise awareness for such a great cause. We hope to continue to strengthen our program's footprint in the community by being involved in many more initiatives within the D.C. area."
NEDA is the leading non-profit in the United States advocating on behalf of and supporting individuals and families affected by eating disorders. Reaching millions every year, NEDA campaigns for prevention, improved access to quality treatment and increased research funding to better understand and treat eating disorders. NEDA works with partners and volunteers to develop programs and tools to help everyone who seeks assistance.
In the United States, 30 million men and women will suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder during their lifetime. NEDA walks help raise awareness and funds in the fight against eating disorders.
NEDA has over 50 walks across the nation each year, raising over $2 million dollars for its cause since 2009.
National eating disorder awareness week was recently from February 23 to March 1 in 2014.
