Our 12th Annual NAMIWalks Dane County was held on October 1st, and it was a beautiful day!  Over 1000 people attended, to help raise funds and raise awareness to benefit individuals and families affected by mental illness. Walkers and volunteers enjoyed refreshments provided by Whole Foods, Bagels Forever, Starbucks Coffee, HyVee Grocery Store, Festival Foods, Epelgaarden Orchard, and Green's Pleasant Springs Orchard.  Everyone was treated to a 5th quarter performance by UW Band Members, slam poetry by Spoken Word artist Nick Becker, a drum/dance performance by the West High Taiko Drumming Club, face painting and more.

Fundraising for this Walk will continue until November 30, 2017.  Please continue to reach out to everyone you know to make their donation so that we can reach our goal.  Walkers who raise $250 or more before October 31st, will earn a prize, featured here.  The website will remain open for on-line donations through Nov 30th.  Please mail all checks received to the NAMI Dane County office, 2059 Atwood Ave, Madison WI 53704 by Nov 30th.  Any checks received after that will be credited to the 2018 NAMIWalk.  Be sure to include the name of the walker and team (if applicable) in the memo area of the check, so we know who to credit the donation to.

Save the date!  The 13th Annual NAMIWalks Dane County will be held on Sunday, October 7th, 2018, at Olin-Turville Park!
