Announcing the 1st Annual NAMI Treasure Valley 5K Walk and Resource Fair happening Saturday, September 29th, 2018. The walk will branch starting from Old Timers Shelter in Ann Morrison Park and loop around along the beautiful Boise greenbelt back to the shelter for walkers and supporters to join in on the Resource Fair. In addition to the 5K, the fair will host provider booths, an interactive art project, food trucks, vendors, therapy dogs, and a family friendly activities area!
HOW IT WORKS
Most of the money is raised before the Walk. Register to walk or become a Team Captain. Then ask friends, family, coworkers, and business associates to donate either in person or via email or letter. Share your story of why mental illness is important to you. You’ll probably find out that the persons you’re talking to have their own story to share, too.
