Arizona HOSA’s NAMI Walk

On October 15, 1,880 dedicated NAMI supporters and HOSA members walked around the Arizona State

Capital for the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The 5k walk raised money and awareness for mental

illnesses. Arizona HOSA Members from all over the state were in attendance to give their support to our

National Service Project and contribute to its mission to end the stigma surrounding mental illnesses.

Overall,

Arizona HOSA raised $171,947

for NAMI and kicked off the beginning of an amazing partnership

between HOSA and our national service project.

I’d highly recommend that every HOSA member involve themselves in a walk or community service for

NAMI to show support for the organization!

At this year’s International Leadership Conference, the Voting Delegates

selected the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) as HOSA’s 2016-2018

National Service Project. NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health

organization dedicated to building better lives for millions of Americans

affected by mental illness. HOSA is honored to partner with NAMI for the next

two years and, we are excited to see HOSA members getting involved!
