HOUSTON, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) and MentorCONNECT, the first global eating disorders nonprofit mentoring community, are proud to announce the launch of their 4th Annual Virtual Walk, a nationwide social media-based awareness and fundraising event supporting NEDAwareness Week (February 23-March 1).

This innovative online event offers recovering persons, loved ones, treatment professionals, educators, and the greater community the chance to "walk" online, using their social networks for good to raise awareness of and promote resources for eating disorders recovery.

All Virtual Walk contributions support the nonprofit work of NEDA and MentorCONNECT and are tax-deductible as a charitable contribution. Contributions make it possible for these two organizations to provide another year of free recovery support services to an ever-growing nationwide network of constituents.

NEDA and MentorCONNECT would also like to recognize and thank the event's eating disorder treatment center sponsors, Green Mountain at Fox Run and Center for Change, whose contributions have helped to make this year's Virtual Walk possible.

You can participate in two ways: 1) by making a donation, and 2) by sharing the Virtual Walk link with your social networks.
