Race for Recovery!
Join the Race for Recovery
Program at Beyond the Mirror. This program was developed by a Colorado runner who recovered from an eating disorder. She
contacted Beyond the Mirror and asked if she could help develop a program that
could make recovery possible for ALL people. All donations go toward providing intensive out
patient to treatment to individuals that are unable to cover the costs of
11 million Americans suffer from an eating disorder. Eating disorder treatment
is very expensive, which is why your help and support means so much. Treatment of an eating disorder in the US ranges from $500 per day to $2,000 per day.
Outpatient treatment, including therapy and medical monitoring, can cost
$100,000 or more. Eating disorders can be successfully and fully treated to
complete remission, but only 1 in 10 people with eating disorders receive
treatment. We need your help!

Katherine Melland Raced for Recovery!
Katherine joined 270 other participants on a trail run from Buena Vista, CO through the Collegiate Peaks and back to town.
She called Beyond the Mirror and asked if she could sponser a Race for Recovery. Then she asked her family & friends to sponsor her race. She directed individuals to the BTM website to make a donation. AND she chose where she wanted her proceeds to go!
Katherine raced to create a scholarship program for individuals who are unable to afford intensive outpatient treatment! And now we are all RACING FOR RECOVERY!

We recognize that the thought of 'Running" for recovery may be triggering to individuals in their own recovery.
Not everyone can exercise during the recovery from an eating disorder. It is important to nourish your body and fuel it well for an active lifestyle. Please check in with your physician before engaging in exercise.
