The 2015 NAMI SWI 5K Race for Recovery, 1Mile Walk for Awareness was held on Saturday, June 27th at GCS Gateway Grizzlie’s Stadium. The weather was perfect – no rain and low humidity. We had 35 runners and almost 90 walkers set off at a brisk pace at 8:15 am.

Beverly Watkins, President – NAMI SWI, welcomed the participants and thanked everyone for their ongoing support for our organization and signature programs. Dana Rosenzweig, Executive Director – St. Clair County Mental Health Board, addressed the crowd prior to the start of the race.


Our thanks to the sponsors, exhibitors, and volunteers for their support and contributions. Our event was a huge success due to the dedication, generosity, and teamwork of all involved. Families expressed that they learned about NAMI programs, resources, and services while having fun at the race/walk.
