Why Walk

I attended my first NEDA walk afraid of admitting to myself or anyone else that I needed help, but I was amazed at the community of hope and support I witnessed — it's what has kept me coming back every year. Each NEDA walk leaves me inspired to keep pushing forward and fighting for what I believe in. Somewhere along the way, with the help of the recovery community, I've found my voice and I'm no longer afraid to admit when I need help.Ally L.
