NAMIWalks is inviting Toledo residents to walk a mile for the support of those who suffer from mental illness. Millions of Americans are affected by mental illness every year. To provide hope and support, one group of compassionate individuals started a grassroots organization more than 30 years ago: NAMI—National Alliance on Mental Illness. With a clear goal of making services, treatments, support and research more accessible, the foundation started the NAMIWalks. Since their first walk 12 years ago, the number of participants has only grown. Join thousands of your fellow Toledoans on NAMI’s 1.5 mile Walk for Awareness. Get a team together beforehand, or just show up with your own awesome self to support a great cause.
Saturday, May 10 at 9am. University of Toledo Medical Center Campus, 3000 Arlington Ave., Toledo.
