Anad Logo

Since 1976, ANAD has grown to become the leading nonprofit in the U.S. providing free, peer support services to anyone struggling with an eating disorder. What began as one support group in Highland Park, Illinois, is now 11 virtual support groups, a Helpline, and mentorship program. Today, ANAD serves 250 people every week. Our work is made possible by our diverse board and staff, generous donors, and our nationwide network of volunteers who understand firsthand the ups and downs of the recovery journey.

In this 45th year of service, ANAD aims to expand services by 45% over the next year. Join our 45th anniversary expansion through the fundraising events described below. More events will be added throughout the year, so stay connected!

ANAD 45th Anniversary Program

Joyful Movement: $5K Fundraiser

When: September 1 - 30, 2021
Where: Anywhere!

To celebrate 45 years of raising awareness and supporting those living with eating disorders, you're invited to join us in your interpretation of Joyful Movement, to benefit ANAD! Together, we commit to move our bodies and minds in ways that feel good. Choose a time or distance commitment that works for you and walk, run, skip, stretch, meditate or roll your way to your goal! Our event aims to raise at least $5,000 to help ANAD continue providing free, compassionate peer support. This event is sponsored by McCallum Place.
