There are a number of organizations out there that could always use our help. And I usually mention various arts and architecture organizations. But I wanted to make special mention of NAMI of Hamilton County and let you know about their upcoming fundraiser, NAMIwalks.
NAMI is the National Alliance on Mental Illness. On May 10, 2008, NAMI of Hamilton County will have their 5th Annual NAMIwalks. This is their big fundraiser of the year. The 2 or 3 mile walk begins at Sawyer Point at 9:00 AM with registration beginning at 8:00 AM. Contact NAMI for more information. Even if you do not walk and participate in the event, consider making a donation to a walker or making a general donation on the NAMIwalks website.
People may not like to talk about mental illness but it is sure nice to have someone to talk to about it when you need to.
