Welcome to my personal NAMIWalks page. I have created this fundraising page because NAMI, and the work they do, is very important to me. NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans impacted by mental illness.
I am dedicating my walking and fundraising in this walk to memory of my sister who would have been 51 on January 15, 2018. I donated $50 for my sister's birthday and I'm asking you to match or surpass that amount if possible. Of course all donations are welcomed. Valerie took her own life at 34 and I believe stigma played a role in her death. The same stigma that NAMI fights via education, advocacy, raising awareness and public policy efforts.
Donating to me through this page is easy, fast and secure. Your donation will make a difference in the lives of the 43.8 million adults who experience mental illness in a given year.
