NAMI stands for National Alliance on Mental Illness.  NAMI Sauk Area's goal is to use this fundraiser to assist our group in raising awareness of the support families need when dealing with a loved one or friend who is living with a mental illness.  We are dedicated to eliminating the stigma that is prevalent with mental illness.  Money raised from this event will facilitate training for CIT officers, help pay for Family 2 Family manuals, training for instructors in NAMI based programs and instructional brochures. THERE WILL BE AN AWARDS CEREMONY AT 9:15 A.M.  Thank you for Running & Walking beside us!

Race Packet pick-up will be available at the Registration area on Friday, July 13, 2018 from 5-7 p.m. and Saturday, July 14, 2018 from 6:30-7:45 a.m.
