C&A is proud to announce its support for the 3rd Annual NAMI Walks for the Mind of America.
Join C&A and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) on Saturday, June 12, 2010 as they walk to decrease the stigma often related to mental illness, build community alliances and partnerships, and raise funds to further the reach of NAMI programs throughout Nebraska. C&A Industries is proud to serve as the walk’s presenting sponsor.
NAMI-Nebraska is our state’s affiliate, with a mission of providing education, support and advocacy for anyone whose life has been touched by mental illness. Ten local NAMI affiliates are located throughout the state. Although all of NAMI-Nebraska’s programs and services are offered free of charge, funds raised through the walk will assist in purchasing materials and training program trainers.
Nebraska’s 3rd Annual NAMI Walks for the Mind of America will be held at Elmwood Park in Omaha, Nebraska. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. with the walk starting at 10 a.m. There is no cost to participate in the walk and all walkers and rollers are welcome.
