NAMIWalks Team Fundraisers: May 12

For each of the last 15 years, engaged and dedicated Team Captains have been registering their friends, family, faith based community and co-workers to participate in NAMIWalks. NAMIWalks is a public display of support for people affected by mental health conditions and is one important way we are changing the way Americans view people with a mental illness. Please help us “stomp out” the stigma of mental illness and provide programs of support by sponsoring our National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) annual NAMIWalks fundraising and awareness campaign.
