One of the biggest hurdles in the fight against obesity is educating the public on the disease itself. Sadly, individuals affected by obesity are often victims of negative weight bias.
Last year, with support of people like you, Strides for Obesity started the conversation about obesity awareness with the goal to increase support and to help remove the stigma from obesity and bring positivity and respect to those affected by it. And thanks to their help, we made a positive impact!
By joining Strides for Obesity in the fight to eliminate the bias associated with the disease, work was also done to make sure that obesity is treated as a disease by allowing for increased access to safe and effective medical treatment. Thanks to all the great effort, our first year was a resounding success, raising over $8,000 for the QEII’s Halifax Obesity Network Clinic.
We could not have not done it last year without the enthusiastic participation and inspiring support from a group of extraordinary individuals!
Please join us in Victoria Park, Halifax, NS for our annual Strides for Obesity 3K Walk and join in the fight to #StopObesityStigma #StridesforObesity2017 and make this year even better!
