The 3rd Annual NAMI Hillsborough 5k Walk/Run: It’s Time to Act! seeks to bring awareness to mental illness, but is also a call for action to the community to commit to the “Cure Stigma” pledge to combat mental health stigma, and support community based mental health programs. Together, as a community, we can take action now to fight against mental illness, and bring education, leadership, and advocacy to those afflicted.
The NAMI walk run is held every year in order to help bring awareness to mental health, create a platform to “Cure Stigma,” and raise money to support NAMI community based programs and services. NAMI Hillsborough is a grass-roots non-profit affiliate of NAMI. NAMI Hillsborough is currently made up of people that work in the mental health field, are consumers of mental health services, or have experienced mental illness within their family or friends.
