National Alliance on Mental Illness – Annual Walk – May 14th – Seaside Park

The Coldwell Banker Spring Lake office has partnered with NAMI – The National Alliance on Mental Illness – in an effort to support their fundraising efforts. This is their major fundraiser for the year and I am especially pleased that the Monmouth County chapter has chosen to honor our family by doing this walk in our son Nicholas’ honor. They are having their annual walk on May 14th in Seaside Park and we are putting together a team to show our support. The support services they make available to the mentally ill is quite extensive. Please read our story and consider walking and/or supporting this great cause. If you, like so many, have a family member or friend that has struggled with mental illness, you may want to start your own team. However you choose to support this cause is greatly appreciated.
