Get ready to support NAMI

The local National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) will hold its annual fundraising walk on Sept. 18. 

Augustana will organize a staff team and a student team for NAMI Walks Your Way Greater Mississippi Valley

Anna Misener, incoming president of Augie NAMI, will be the contact for the student team. Bill Iavarone, director of Student Counseling Service, will assemble the staff team.

A team does not need to donate in order to participate; however, each individual who raises $100 will get a T-shirt.

There are two upcoming events to raise awareness about NAMI walks:
