Dozens came together to help raise awareness for disorders that affect millions.

Indiana State University hosted the National Eating Disorder Association, NEDA, Walk Saturday morning.
   
This is the first time the walk has taken place in Terre Haute, bringing in around $3,000.
   
All of the proceeds will benefit the foundation to help with prevention, education, and research.
   
Over 70 people participated, and experts say it's a good way to help open the lines of communication about these disorders.

"I think it was great to be able to get a conversation started in Terre Haute and on some of the local college campuses about eating disorders. Eating disorders are very difficult to talk about, they still have a lot of stigma attached, so it's hard for people to talk about having one or even having experienced one in the past. This is this is a great first that for our community," said Melissa Grinslave, walk coordinator.

If you or someone you know is struggling with an eating disorder, you can contact the ISU Counseling Center at (812) 237-3939.
