Like every year, the P/HD Club and Psi Chi are getting out to support the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) by walking in the NAMIWalk. This year, though, they are combining forces to put together one Super-Team by walking together – and they want you to join them.
For those of you unfamiliar with NAMI, it is an advocacy group with the mission of improving the quality of life for those affected by mental illness, and NAMIWalks is an event designed to raise money and awareness. This year, the 3.1 mile walk will be on Sunday, September 26th, at 10:30 am (check-in time is at 9:00 am), at Green Isle Park. Please note that, for you die-hard Packer fans, there is no game that Sunday so you won’t be missing out.
To join the team, click here and click on “Join an Existing Team.” The website will take you through how to create an account and join a team. Our team is called the UWGB Psychology and Human Development Club/Psi Chi Team, and Kaitlyn Florer and Amanda Luedtke are the team captains. In the past, the team has arranged to carpool in order to help out those students who don’t have transportation. So, if you want to walk but don’t have a ride, contact Kaitlyn or Amanda to see if they can help you arrange something.
For those of you who aren’t interested in the walk or can’t participate that day but would like to know more about NAMI, here are the links to NAMI National and NAMI Brown County. If you have any questions, please direct them toward Kaitlyn, Amanda, or Dr. Ryan Martin. Hope to see you there!
