Move the Maaks's
Organized by: Tosha Maaks
EVENT DATE Sep 10, 2016
Friends and family, you know how dear to my heart nami has become to me and my family. Since mental illness has struck our family on so many levels. Since becoming part of nami Chris and I have been able to changes lives by leading support groups, and reaching out to others whose lives have been effected by mental illness. Having mental illness is life changing and bringing awareness as well as resources to others in our area is a much needed thing that we as a community have to keep providing. On September 10th 2016 we are participating in a 5k in Normal IL. Chris and I want to not only grow our membership in the area but want to have the biggest turn out ever this year. If you can't be at the walk could you support the Maaks Team by donating to our cause. Our Affiliate in Livingston and McLean Counties is a small one. It takes money to provide our community with current information, provide our programs such as "Ending the Silence" Set to start in area schools this fall, and "nami basics" which is a class that provides people who love children diagnosed with mental illness get the tools needed to care for their loved ones. We also have "family to family" which is for loved ones with mental illness. These programs need to stay in our community along with the support groups we hold and other support we provide. 1 in 5 people will have mental illness in thier life time. Fact is someone you love may be effected. Show them your support by donating to Move the Maaks's, all donations will be mentioned by a flyer I will hand out on the day of the event. If your business wants to support the nami 5K please get in touch with me for larger sponsorship's. Other wise donate to Move the Maaks's and get our team to our fundraising goal. We would love to make a huge dent in the financial need to keep our Affiliate going. Thanks in advance. Much love, Tosha, Chris and the boys
