5K for NAMI

NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) is the nation’s largest grassroots organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness. NAMI focuses on three cornerstones of activity that offer hope, reform and health: Support, education and advocacy.

NAMIWalks is our signature fundraising event that promotes: Raising awareness about mental illness, increasing community education and reaching out to new families and individuals affected by mental illness, and supporting local NAMI affiliates to build a larger NAMI community.

A 5k (3mi) walk in support of NAMI and its efforts. We are looking for volunteers for walk day to help with set up/tear down, as well as help during the walk. This includes activities such as manning water stations, supervising the children’s area, registration, and the like. Volunteers will know their assignments prior to walk day.

For more information on the walk, visit NAMI's website.

September 24, 2011. Registration begins at 9:00am, walk at 10:00am. Volunteers would need to be there by 7:00am that day.

Valley Regional Park: 5100 S 2700 W. Taylorsville
