We are walking in this year's walkathon for two reasons - to raise awareness and fight the stigma surrounding mental illness, and to raise funds to help support the wonderful free programs that NAMI Vermont offers around the state.
1 in 5 people in the US experience a mental health condition. Our family has been witness to this over hte years with family and with friends, and we want to make sure that the resources and programs are available to our loved ones and to others who might need this support in their lives.
Our family hopes you will support this important missions. And if you want to join us, we'd love to have you walk with us on September 28 at 1 pm beginning at the First Unitarian Universalist Society in Burlington.
