There is no charge to sign up for the walk, but walkers that raise $100 receive a walk T-shirt. If you cannot attend on May 19, please sign up as a virtual walker on the team or support another team member!
The purpose of this event is to raise awareness, stamp out stigma, and raise money for NAMI Arkansas, which is the state chapter of NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness), “the Nation’s Voice on Mental Illness.” NAMI Arkansas, a grassroots organization, provides support, education, and advocacy for individuals living with mental illness and their family members.
Second Pres member Rick Owen, chair of the NAMIWalks event in Arkansas again this year, has posted a 3-min video about his desire to help others by supporting NAMI. (www.youtube.com/watch?v=3K5WWtvLMzs&feature=email)
