Sertoma Park Hosts NAMI Walk In Sioux Falls

Sertoma Park Hosts NAMI Walk In Sioux Falls
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Music, smiles, and even Star Wars characters filled Sertoma Park this morning for the NAMI Walk in Sioux Falls.

This event is the South Dakota National Alliance on Mental Illness' only fundraiser for the year, supporting nine affiliates across the state. Hundreds of people showed up to support the walk and to bring the topic of mental illness into the open.

"We want people to realize that mental illnesses are physical illnesses and they're part of the human condition and so it's great to come together and talk about this and to raise awareness and to encourage people to get treatment and to get help and to get support and NAMI is a great place to get that support," Executive Director of NAMI South Dakota Wendy Giebink said.

The organization raised more than $50,000 today, but they are still short of their $75,000 goal. They are accepting donations during the next month.

If you'd like to support NAMI South Dakota, send donations to this address:

NAMI South Dakota
P.O. Box 88808
Sioux Falls, SD 57109
