About Heal with Grace

In loving memory of Grace Holland Cozine

The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) envisions a world without eating disorders - a world where education, prevention programs, and quality care are accessible to all. A world where no more lives are lost to these cruel illnesses.

Unfortunately, this is not yet our reality. Eating disorders have the second highest mortality rate of all mental health disorders - but even in the darkness, there is still hope. And with your help, we can brighten the future of our field.

Founded in loving memory of Grace Holland Cozine, Heal with Grace is a virtual event honoring those we have lost to eating disorders. On November 14th, supporters and advocates from across the country will gather online for a day of hope, healing, and connection.

We will find strength and create change together. Our goal is to raise $100,000 in honor of the lives we’ve lost to eating disorders. The funds raised will support prevention, education, and support resources as well as critical advocacy and research initiatives, including:

  • NEDA’s Helpline
  • Online Screening Tool
  • The Body Project
  • Confident Body, Confident Child
  • Feeding Hope Fund for Clinical Research
  • Legislative Advocacy

How to Participate

To participate in Heal with Grace, you will need to register online here. There is no registration fee to participate - you can help us reach our goal by making a personal donation and raising funds leading up to event day.

After you register for the event, personalize your fundraising page that we created for you. Share your story, honor your loved one, and express why raising money to support NEDA’s programs matters to you.

Next, set up a Facebook Fundraiser from your Participant Center. This is one of the easiest ways to raise funds. You can also share your fundraising page via email, text, and social media. We have sample donation letters to help you, too.

Keep sharing, raising, and advocating through November 14th - we need your help to reach our goal.

Heal with Grace will be hosted live on Saturday, November 14th at 11:30 AM EDT. The event will feature guest speakers, a heartwarming musical performance, and a special tribute to all of the lives lost to eating disorders. You will receive a unique link to log into the virtual event closer to event day.
