A benefit concert for The Walking With Nathaniel BDD Research Fund will be held in April at Westtown School. The musical celebration will feature two Haverford College acapela groups, faculty and student singers from Westtown School, a bluegrass ensemble, several instrumentalists, a Quebecois singer, and more. During the evening program, information will be shared about BDD and the most recent research into this brain disorder.

Turn Adversity to Advocacy
Each year brings opportunities to raise awareness about BDD and OCD—the 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Awareness 5K Walk, the Annual OCD Conference, and OCD Awareness Week. Each makes publicly visible these invisible brain disorders that cripple the lives of sufferers, their families, and friends. Collectively as a society, we are as healthy as the hardest hit of our members, so we’ve got work to do. To remove the stigma of brain disorders and to help cure them, we invite you to get involved: become a member of the International OCD Foundation, volunteer, attend an event, or make a donation.

1 Million Steps 4 OCD Awareness 5K Walk
The 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Awareness Walk was created in 2013, the year after my pilgrimage from Cheyney, PA to Boston, MA in memory of Nathaniel. Like the original, this new walk event is to raise awareness, funds, and hope. This year, we want to see how many million steps we can walk for OCD awareness together.
