My beautiful girlfriend Nicole has been battling with her eating disorder for almost a decade.
Nearly 600,000 people in Florida are suffering from an eating disorder, and 10% of those are under the age of ten.
I wanted to support her, so I came down to the walk with her, her parents, and sister.
And her dog Harley
And some friends we met along the way.
The event was inspiring and empowering for women battling their ED. The statistics are shocking.
23 people will lose their battle with ED and die today.
And the walk is meant to educate and empower those who suffer from ED and the friends and family.
And ours just started
Nicole really enjoys the event. She's gone every year since she left treatment.
She's studying hard. She's working towards her Bachelors Degree in Psychology, and her Associates in Addiction Studies.
She wants to help people like her overcome their eating disorder.
