Date and Time
Saturday, May 4th, 2013 at 9:30am
Hey there! Come out and support NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness at their walk at Fair Park. I will be sharing a short message about my experiences with battling mental illness personally and as a family as well as singing with Milo and the band. I would love to see you there! The music time has not been set yet. It will be a short set, (30 min) so come to walk as well!
I have also become a Team Captain for a unique fundraising opportunity for people who care, as I do, about mental illness. You can help even if you can't make the concert. Because in addition to singing at the walk I hope to help them raise some needed funds to help others with mental health needs. Want to help me reach my goal? Here's how!
Welcome to Dallas NAMIWalks 2013!
Dallas NAMIWalks is a 5K Walk event designed to increase NAMI’s visibility in our community in order to raise awareness about mental illness, and raise funds to support NAMI programs across North Texas.
Every year, the Walk helps people understand the impact that mental illness has on their communities; the prevalence and indiscriminate nature of these illnesses; the fact that recovery is possible if treatment is available; and about the hope that NAMI provides. As we grow and add to the number of people that know about NAMI and understand the important role NAMI plays in their lives, we also reduce the number people that have misconceptions about mental illness and those that are affected by it.
