NAMI Mercer is an affiliate of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and of NAMI New Jersey, serving the Mercer County area. NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization. It provides education and support for individuals and families affected by mental illness, and advocates for lives of quality and respect, without stigma or discrimination. Last year, seven people from Dutch Neck formed a team and walked in NAMI Mercer’s annual fundraising 5K.
This year, seventeen people registered to walk in support of NAMI Mercer with the church’s team, raising both awareness and funds for this worthy organization’s programs. NAMI Mercer provides all of its services free of charge.
May 2nd was a beautiful day, and all team members enjoyed the fine spring morning and the unique opportunity to enjoy fellowship, get some exercise and raise money for a good cause. Last year’s team of seven raised $2,764. To date, the 2015 team has raised over $4,200. It is possible to make a donation through June 30, 2015 and help us reach our goal of $5,000. To do so, give here.
