Garden of Life proudly sponsored the National Alliance on Mental Illness Walk (NAMIWalks) Palm Beach County recently in Lake Worth.
Over 500 NAMI participants, supporters and volunteers gathered at John Prince Park for the annual 5K that raises awareness for mental illness. Attendees enjoyed a fun environment in the park with free food, The SUNNY Street Team, pre-walk Zumba and plenty of kids’ activities! Garden of Life provided Dr. Formulated Probiotics Mood+ along with single-serving packets of RAW Protein, RAW Meal and RAW Fit for all to enjoy!
This year, NAMIWalks celebrates its 13th
anniversary as the largest and most successful mental health awareness and fundraising event in America! Through NAMIWalks' public display of support for people affected by mental illness, they aim to change how Americans view mental illness to ensure that help and hope are available for those in need.
As a first-year NAMIWalks sponsor, we were fortunate to learn more about NAMI, mental illness and form relationships with participants while enjoying the annual event. We’re thankful for such a rewarding experience and truly look forward to NAMIWalks Palm Beach County 2016!
