Currently in British Columbia there are few options for those struggling with an eating disorder, regardless of the severity of their health. Approximately170,000 Canadian men will suffer from
an eating disorder in their lifetime, yet many of the needed treatment are not publicly funded.

Thursday September 25, 2014, at Heritage Hall on Main Street in Vancouver.
Bid of some cool local items, watch some amazing local talent, all while sipping on a cocktail, or beer if you prefer! Help us create change within our community, and give hope and much needed
support to those suffering from an eating disorder.
