namiwalks 2007

“the most shocking thing about mental illness is how much it is misunderstood”.

it’s that time of the year… this upcoming october 6th, nami (national alliance on mental illness), is putting on their namiwalks event again. on this day, thousands of concerned citizens in more than 60 communities across the nation will walk together to raise money and awareness about our country’s need for a world class treatment and recovery system for the members of its 1 in 5 families that are affected by a mental illness.

the simplest thing you can do to help is to visit nami’s website and learn something about mental illness today. if you feel more daring, you can wear a silver ribbon and help fight stigma (you’re also helping fight stigma if you monitor biased portrayals of people with mental illness in the media). you can also give a tax-deductible gift to NAMI and be part of the help that it brings people everyday.

    NAMI-OC has been a client of mine for the past 10 years. I perform their financial statement audit. The walk has become a critical fundraiser for them since they closed their thrift store. I’m going to miss the walk this year since I’ll be in Chicago for the Marathon.

    P.S. Nice job in Tahoe.

    Ná, lembrei de você lendo o link abaixo.

    É sobre uma alternativa aos ‘walking tours’ que existem em muitas cidades no mundo… agora, tem o ‘running tours’.
