We all know mental illness effects so many people in a variety of ways. It is a hot topic in politics, social media, law enforcement, and more. NAMI SWI’s mission is to provide support, education, advocacy and public aware-ness for those living with mental illness and their loved ones.

As the chairperson, I not only consider this event as aiding NAMI SWI’s mission, but I see it as an event of courage. Courage to stand up and breakdown stigma, courage to show support for one’s self and loved ones, courage to band together as a community to help better the lives of so many people.

If YOU are interested in learning how YOU can show your courage, please contact me via Run/Walk email address at runwalk@namiswi.org. Meetings will be held every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6:00pm at Gateway Medical Center in Pascal Hall prior to NAMI SWI meetings. Attending meetings is not a must; we communicate by conference calls, emails, and personal calls from me.

Thank you all for your support in the past and in the future! Go Team NAMI SWI!
