This year our race will be a VIRTUAL run due to COVID-19. We are asking each participant to schedule their own 5K between April 13 and July 11th. You will e-mail your time and we will enter the times for awards on July 11, 2020. Use this time at Shelter to Home to get outside and train for your 5K for NAMI Sauk Area! There will be a drawing for anyone who posts a picture of themself doing their 5K. Please post to the NAMI Sauk Area 5K Facebook page or #namisaukarea5k2020. T-shirts, bibs, awards and swag will be mailed to all participants on July 13, 2020. Please help us keep this race ACTIVE and alive!
We are intending this race to be outdoors only. If you use an indoor course or treadmill it will not count in awarding so please add “indoor” to your result. We are asking our participants to be honest with results.
Join us in helping to eliminate the stigma of mental illness at a fun, family event in the Sauk Valley Area.
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.
