This past Saturday morning, Team Caminar joined forces with others in the Silicon Valley to walk together to raise funds and awareness to help change perceptions about mental illness. Team Caminar included our CEO Chip Huggins, Nikki Luistro and her sister, Maryanne McGlothlin, a group from Redwood House, and board member Samyukt Bajaj.
Held at the Guadalupe River Park in San Jose, this year’s event included 1,130 participants and has raised $216,628 thus far, which is over 75% of the goal and still going!
NAMIWalks Silicon Valley is just one of over 80 events in 2017. Each NAMIWalks is a 5K event that raises awareness and funds for NAMI organizations across the country. Last year, NAMIWalks all over the United States collectively raised nearly $11 million. So far this year, almost $9 million has been raised!
Thanks, Team Caminar, for spending your Saturday morning stomping out stigma!
