Hey, team captains! Send us pictures of the front and back of your team t-shirt (with a digital camera, not a cell phone please) and we will vote on a winner to be entered into a contest with NAMI National. The local t-shirt winner will get $50 from NAMI, and the national contest winner will win $250. Please send your pictures to michelle@namior.org.

…for signing up a team! If you haven’t signed up to walk yet, visit the walk web site and sign up today!

Each time a walker raises $50 online, you’ll be entered into a drawing for a voucher for a 7 day/6 night cruise for two adults. The contest is open until midnight on Friday, May 25. A winner will be randomly selected in the drawing the following week. Sign up to walk by visiting the walk web site.

Thanks so much to all of the sponsors, speakers, volunteers and our emcee, Ken Coleman, for making the 2012 walk kick-off luncheon a success! Pictured here are our two awesome NAMI supporters: 2012 honorary walk chair, Dave Dahl, and Portland City Commissioner Amanda Fritz.
