On March 17th, I will be running the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon. I am excited and proud to be running for Team NAMI. NAMI is the National Alliance for Mental Illness. NAMI is an amazing organization that, among other things, has support groups for people suffering with mental illness and for their family members.
My family's struggle with mental illness started about 20 years ago and is a life long battle. As a family member of someone with mental illness, I have found that having a support network is integral. NAMI helps people realize that they are not facing the challenges of mental illness alone, and they offer a safe space to talk about mental illness. This organization has helped my family, and raising money for NAMI is just a small way for me to give back.
Please consider supporting me in my goal to raise a TON!!! of money for NAMI. :) Any amount would be appreciated!
