(Calgary AB, April 11, 2016) - More than 30,000 Albertans (male and female) suffer from eating disorders, with no specialized provincial residential treatment facility for the illness. On April 30, two Calgary dads who know firsthand the pain of having a child with an eating disorder will run 90,000 steps with a total elevation change of over 6,000 metres in Arizona's Grand Canyon as part of the first fundraising efforts of Calgary Silver Linings Foundation (CSLF), the only Alberta foundation working towards the establishment of the province's first eating disorder residential treatment centre in Southern Alberta.
Registration is now open for our Spring Client Support Group beginning April 25th. Space is limited, so please register early.
