Why Something for Kelly
Motivated by her niece’s – Kelly Burk Nobbe – untimely death in 2009, Patti Geolat has created a national foundation to prevent eating disorders (ED) in children ages 6-12. Something for Kelly was launched this year during the National Eating Disorders Week, February 23 – March 1st. Its mission is to empower children ages 6-12 to fight their predisposition to eating disorders. Through its programs and services, the foundation aspires to create a mindset shift in children with a predisposition to ED, assist them in recalibrating their relationship with food, and motivate them to voluntarily choose a healthier direction.
