The Fort Wayne NEDA Walk will take place at Parkview Field on Saturday, April 27th, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
NEDA stands for National Eating Disorders Association.
Fitness instructor Emilee Stemmler says 30 million Americans suffer from an eating disorder and there is a need for help and support in Fort Wayne.
Stemmler says she struggled with an eating disorder in high school.
It got so bad, she says at one point she wanted to die because all should could think about was controlling her weight.
Stemmler shared her story with morning anchor Julian Teekaram.
