Announcing our Guest Speaker, Former Mariners Catcher:
While in high school, Mike Marjama was encouraged to cut weight for the wrestling team. The pressure for weight loss led to the development of an eating disorder, exacerbated by excessive exercise and a severe decline in weight. Ultimately, Mike admitted to inpatient treatment for his eating disorder, missing the 2006 baseball season his junior year. Mike openly speaks about eating disorders to adults, adolescents, and families to help end the stigma and spread awareness. He also appears in a documentary about his experience on the UNINTERRUPTED multimedia platform for athletes.
