Promoting women’s health through education, advocacy, and community.

We believe there is power in community. The Lane 9 Project is a community of active ladies and lady health activists committed to raising our voices about issues including body image, women’s health, eating disorder recovery, and sport. We want a loud, strong, evolving conversation about the prevalence of eating disorders and amenorrhea amongst female athletes — girls and women of all ages and at any level of endurance or competition. We want to bring a voice, a movement, education, and hope to active women. We’re happy to be talking.
