NAMI WALK for Awareness

So I've been slacking in the volunteerism department. So this year I've decided to walk in the NAMI Maryland Walk. I'm trying to get a team together as well as reach my goal of collecting $1000.00 in donations.

NAMI stands for the National Alliance on Mental Illness. It is at the forefront of funding research, pushing legislation to better those with mental illness, as well as providing support for families with relatives and friends effected by mental illnesses.

Additional Information:
The goal of the WALK is to raise both money and awareness in Maryland regarding the need for treatment and a recovery system for children and adults with mental illness. Proceeds from the WALK provide essential education and support to help improve the lives of individuals with mental illness as well as their families.

We need your help to support NAMI’s vital programs. Below you will find basic information about the NAMI Maryland Walk. If you'd like to participate in the Walk, donate on behalf of a walker, or sponsor this event use the links to the right.


If you can't donate I would love for you to participate in the walk and walk with me! And fight for equal rights for those with mental illnesses!!!
