Wristband photo challenge issued

The Provincial Eating Disorders Awareness campaign is holding a contest.

The Provincial Eating Disorders Awareness (PEDAW) campaign wants Abbotsford residents to take part in a B.C.-wide photo challenge.

PEDAW is looking for photo submissions that include the official “Love our Bodies, Love Ourselves” wristband.

Photos submitted by Jan. 20 will be considered for placement as the featured photo of the day throughout February to spread awareness around eating disorders.

For more information or to request a free wristband, email pedaw@familyservices.bc.ca.  Full information about the photo challenge is available at:  http://bit.ly/wristbandpedaw

PEDAW is a province-wide effort to raise awareness around prevention and early intervention of eating disorders as well as media literacy, resiliency, building healthy body image and self-esteem.

PEDAW is launched the first full week in February with activities and events taking place throughout the year.
