The Kirsten Haglund Foundation: The KHF continues the work that Kirsten began as Miss America 2008 – The Mission to provide hope, networking and financial aid to those seeking treatment and freedom from eating disorders. The initiative to create KHF came from Kirsten’s own battle with an eating disorder, and desire to expand awareness of this disease.
While traveling the country as Miss America, Kirsten heard firsthand, story after story, of young men and women who, with professional help, were able to recover from their eating disorder and embrace total wellness and health.
