To promote awareness of mental health and reduce stigma by sharing stories and walking together
To raise funds for NAMI's mission of advocacy, support and public awareness
To build community and reassure people they are not alone
Mary and I have been involved with NAMI since 2006 when mental illness struck our family unexpectedly. We both took the NAMI Family-to-Family evidence-based education program and it was a life saver. Since then we became teachers for this terrific program and have been volunteering with NAMI in various capacities ever since. NAMI has education, support and advocacy programs that are all conducted by trained unpaid volunteers. However, it still costs a lot of money to pay the rent, buy program and outreach materials, and to conducted trainings to train new volunteers for the many programs NAMI has available.
Please JOIN OUR TEAM and walk with us, or SUPPORT US by making a donation to a team member listed on our ROSTER, or just make a donation to our team. Donations on this site are fast, secure and easy.
All funds raised directly support the mission of NAMI to provide support, education, and advocacy to individuals and families right here in our community.
Together, we are moving closer to a world where all people affected by mental illness live healthy, fulfilling lives supported by a community that cares.
