Greetings NAMI supporters!

Thank you all SO MUCH for a fabulous event – we had 1,602 people come join us Sunday to help stomp out the stigma and send the message to the community that mental health care is important! Whether you raised money, volunteered the day of the event or ahead of time (or both!), led a team, or walked, your contribution to our mission truly made a difference!

As someone who lives with a mental illness, I was really inspired by the turnout of support – you all made me proud!

We are still counting money – we’ll have a preliminary total this week – and we will be accepting donations through July 17. Now’s a great time to remind people who haven’t yet sponsored you, or have promised a donation, that they can still contribute. They can donate through your online page or send checks to our NAMI Oregon office at 3550 SE Woodward Street, Portland, OR, 97202.

Now go congratulate yourselves for a job well done!

Michelle Madison, Walk Manager
