We will be providing an in-person 5K along with virtual events for those who can not attend in person. We will follow CDC and Whiteside County Health Department recommendations for this event to keep everyone safe. Updates will be made on this page and on our facebook page (NAMI Sauk Area 5K) the week of the race. We are offering "in person" registration as well as "virtual". If you enter the in person 5K, we will require you to enter a time so that we can stage heats if needed to deal with number requirements for the event.
If you choose virtual, please take a picture of yourself and upload it to our facebook page (NAMI Sauk Area 5K). Virtual events will be awarded separately from in person events.
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. 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. All fundraising from this event goes directly to services NAMI Sauk Area provides. Check out our facebook page: NAMI Sauk Area 5K
