You are cordially invited to participate in the «March for Mental Health» 5K Walk/Run, in partnership with the National Alliance on Mental illness (NAMI).
The March for Mental Health is an event for people of all ages! You can walk, or you can lace up your sneakers and go for a run, along our 5K course. This event will also include a Mental Health Expo featuring local mental health agencies and health care providers, to provide you with valuable information regarding community services. Help us make Kansas City a STIGMA FREE city!
Proceeds from this event will go towards:
— Advocacy to advance the research and treatment of mental health disorders.
— Expanding NAMI Connection Recovery Support Groups.
— Suicide prevention and awareness
— Connecting those who suffer from mental illness, and their family members, with community services, health care resources, and mental health providers.
Mark your calendars and watch this space for more information!
