NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Health, NAMIWALKS is a fundraiser to raise awareness of mental health. NAMI walk consists of teams walking towards a 5k route. This year is a bit different since COVID-19 has reached the shores of the United States.

Why they walk?

  • Promote Awareness of mental health and reduce stigma by sharing stories and walking together
  • Fundraiser for NAMI’S mission of advocacy, education, support, and public Awareness.
  • Build a community to let people know they are not alone

At South Sound, we plan to raise as much as we can to help reach their goal of $275,000. Participate in some of the activities to help give back.
