NAMI Virtual Walk sponsored by Name Kirkland on September 12:
This year, more than any other, families and individuals need mental health support more than ever. NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans impacted by mental health conditions. NAMI has been working tirelessly to meet the mental health needs of people in our state and our nation.This year, our local major fundraising effort, the NAMI Walks Your Way in Washington -Kirkland, will be held virtually, with the official date as September 12th, 2020.
Trez Buckland, a member of the Mental Health Ministry who now lives in Sequim, WA, has shared her testimony to invite you to join us. Per Trez …… so I will do “my” walk here! I walk in memory of my sisters, Paula and Carla, and a wonderful young man, Calvin Clark, and all those who have lost their lives in their battle against mental illness. I also walk in celebration and gratitude for the success stories and efforts of individuals with mental illness, and in thanksgiving for the support of people like you who choose to be part of the solution through donation, supporting others or advocacy! You make a difference!”
