On February 22, 2015 nearly 700 runners braved the wind, the cold, and the slush-covered roads to participate in the 4th Annual Lake Effect Half Marathon to benefit Ophelia's Place.
Through private donations, corporate sponsorship and the generosity of a community $30,000 was raised for Ophelia's Place. It was the single biggest fundraiser in the history of Ophelia's Place.
We are constantly amazed by this community, spurred on by their support to reach more and more individuals who are suffering from eating disorders, disordered eating and body dissatisfaction, as well as working to change the culture and conversation around health and beauty.
This is Circles of Change in Action.
