Thank you for being a part of the biggest mental health awareness event in Central Texas!
Every dollar raised supports NAMI’s mission to help people and families affected by mental illness–here and across the country. Together, we are making a difference!
By taking part in NAMIWalks Austin event, we became a part of NAMI’s national movement to build better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. We joined thousands of teams and tens of thousands of participants at close to 100 different walk sites to raise upwards of 12 million dollars in unrestricted funds for NAMI state organizations and local affiliates this year. This money will be used by NAMI in our community to host education programs and support groups, provide mental health trainings, and advocate for access to services.
The Rehoboth Baptist Church, Mt. Zion Baptist Church, and UT Austin School of Nursing NAMI team raised $1,100.00, 220% of our goal. We had 25 walkers registered online and at least 28-30 walkers at the event. Thank you to our team leader, Dr. Shalonda Horton, nurse practitioner, Tara Hutson, church lay health workers and volunteers!
