Do you remember when you first heard of NAMI? Do you remember the relief you felt when you found someone who understood what you and your family were experiencing? Do you remember the smiles and words of encouragement that you received at a support group or in a class? Do you feel comforted today knowing that you are never alone with your struggles? These feelings are possible be being a part of NAMI. We are individuals and families that help each other; learning, supporting, coping with life. We will walk with you. Will you walk with us?
The NAMI Walk is all about that feeling of support and camaraderie. There are smiles and hugs. There is music, food, laughter, and fun. There are people from all over the greater metro area who want to stand with each other and this great organization. They are people who know they have found a source of caring and encouragement by being a part of NAMI. The NAMI Walk will be Saturday, May 16, at Centennial Center Park. It is our annual effort to raise funding for programs, and to lower the stigma of mental health issues. Please sponsor our affiliate and our team. You can find information about the Walk and how you can support it at www.namiwalks.org/colorado. Our team is the NAMI Arapahoe/Douglas Advocates. Please join us at the NAMI Walk!
