This is the third year I will be walking in honor of my mom Shari Brooks. Growing up with a mother who experienced mental illness was at times very difficult. Unfortunately, the struggles of mental illness lead to my mother's passing at a young age, when I was just nineteen years old. However, it was places like NAMI that helped her through the most difficult times. This is why I feel strongly about raising funds and awareness to help support the programs NAMI provides which uplift countless people and families. I ask you to please join me in support of this great cause.
Your donation directly supports the mission of NAMI-NYC Metro, and it means a lot to me personally.
