555 Moving for Mental Health
GRAHAM PRESIDENT, ANDY TREWICK, HAS HIS SIGHTS SET ON RAISING $100,000 FOR MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLNESS!
On July 18, Andy kicks off an eight-week campaign of training and raising funds to increase the awareness of the positive relationship between physical activity and mental health and wellness. Andy will conclude the campaign by running five kms, in five cities, in five days during the week of September 12th.
Andy is running to raise money for a very good cause. Every dollar raised in the U.S. will be donated to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
Check the Graham website regularly to follow along as we raise funds.
$ 5,000 provides 1 mini-grant to a BIPOC community organization to be trained in NAMI's Sharing Hope and Compartiendo Esperanza community discussion curriculums specifically for the African American/Black and Latino-a-x/Hispanic Communities, addressing stigma and providing education about behavioral health conditions with cultural humility.
$2500 allows NAMI to print 2500 copies of our coloring & activity book for children, Meet Little Monster.
