llamasMembers, if you’re unable to walk because of health issues, please come and show your support. There are tables and chairs for you to sit and enjoy watching all the activities.

More great news … Julie Wier and her son, Ben, will be bringing some of NAMI SWI’s mascots, their llamas (and also some alpacas) to the walk as they’ve done in the past. This is always a big hit with the kids and…with us “big” kids too. NAMI SWI appreciates the Wier’s continued support.

More great news … This year the Walk/Race Committee set up our fundraising to be right before a Grizzlies game. Like last year, each participant to our fundraiser receives a ticket to that day’s game. This should be a fun family event.

Come out and Walk with us to show your support!
