Welcome to my personal NAMIWalks fundraising page. I am walking with NAMI because 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.
In September 2016 I lost a life long friend, Justin Stewart, to suicide. My boyfriend Omar lost a beloved coworker last year to suicide as well. We decided to create a team to participate in the LA NAMIWalk to help raise money and awareness for mental illness & suicide prevention. Our team name is a latin phrase meaning "toward better things". I set a lofty fundraising goal for us of $5,000 because I want to challenge myself and you to help us support this important cause that affects so many. Any amount, large or small, you are able to give is greatly appreciated.
Donating to NAMI through my page is easy, fast and secure. Your donation will make a difference and help people and families affected by mental illness right here in our region. Thank you for your support!
