Body Revolution Inc. Offers Community Education and Support for Individuals with Eating Disorders; Hosting Free Walk in Redding

New Non-Profit Based in Redding to Host Fundraising and Community Awareness Walk September 19 at the Lake Redding Gazebo and Pavilion

REDDING, CA--(Marketwired - September 08, 2015) - Body Revolution Inc., a new non-profit based in Redding, Calif., was recently launched by a professional group of women therapists and entrepreneurs to bring attention to and provide support for individuals and their families who struggle with eating disorders and related issues. The organization will also offer positive body image education within the local community.

The first fundraising and awareness event is a community walk to be held on Saturday, September 19, 2015 at the Lake Redding Gazebo and Pavilion. The free event will feature local sponsors, community resources, as well as professionals and individuals speaking on the issue of eating disorders and promoting messages of self-acceptance. Onsite registration begins at 8 a.m. and the walk commences at 9:30 a.m.

Timberline Knolls, the nation's leading residential treatment center for women and girls struggling with eating disorders, addiction, trauma, mood and co-occurring disorders, is a significant sponsor and partner of Body Revolution's community awareness walk.

"Having lived through the experience of having eating disorders myself, I became motivated to become a psychotherapist and start the Body Revolution with my colleagues," said DaLene Forester Thacker, PhD., LMFT, LPCC, CEDS. "My hope and goal was to help at least one person get through the experience one day sooner than the eleven years it took me personally to recover from my eating disorders."

With that in mind, Dr. Forester Thacker and her colleagues decided to start Body Revolution, a non-profit for Shasta County. The organization assures the community's donations and support stays in the local community by bringing hope, support, and education.
