Over 1,200 people flocked to Edgewater Park on the sunny summer morning of Saturday, August 27 for the 14th Annual NAMI Walk. Together, we walked a 5K along the park’s trail and celebrated mental illness treatment and recovery. Thank you to all of the sponsors, volunteers, teams and participants who made this our most successful NAMIWalks ever!
