The Body Image Council sponsored its fourth annual fundraising walk for the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) on Sunday, April 7. This year, the walk was in honor of Marianne “Mimi Murray,” the former dietitian at Bryn Mawr and Haverford who passed away in 2011.

The NEDA walks raise funds to support prevention, awareness, treatment, research, and intervention for eating disorders. This year, 116 people registered and participants raised over $14,000, more than double their goal of $5,000.

Three teams of Bryn Mawr students represented the College at the walk, with Team McBrides, captained by Adrienne Baugher ’15, raising $4,485.
