Walk to Help End the Stigma – Sept. 10

Each year, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) brings communities together by holding walks across the country to promote awareness about mental health issues and resources, raise funds and fight the stigma associated with mental illness. The Grand Rapids NAMIWalk is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 10, at Davenport University’s W. A. Lettinga campus. The Davenport community is invited to participate.

Participation in the walk is free, but participants are encouraged to seek donations from friends and family, co-workers and business associates to support them as they walk.
