NAMIWalks Orange County, NY
Excerpt from NAMI-NYS: Every journey begins with that first step! As NAMIWalks celebrates our 15th Anniversary in 2017, we are proud to be NAMI’s largest and most successful mental health awareness and fundraising event in the country!
Through NAMIWalks public display of support for people with mental health challenges, we are changing how Americans view mental illness. Please join us as we improve lives and our communities one step at a time.
Pat Siano is team captain of a team called "NAMI Orange Walks the Talk" and is continuing to accept donations at the above link. She walked for NAMI-NYS where half of the donations will be distributed to our local affiliate NAMI Orange!
NAMI Orange plans to use the money acquired through these donations to provide mental health education in our community through many community outreaches and anti-stigma campaigns and as well as sponsor attendence to State and National educational conferences.
This year Dhanu Sannesy was asked to walk for the benefit of the NAMI-NYS Board of Directors with all donations she received being directed there. To donate to the NAMI-NYS Board through Dhanu, click this link.
Please pass along this information to your family and friends for their awareness. We welcome everyone's support!
