In 2016, thousands of people in more than 80 communities across the nation will join NAMI and walk together to raise money and awareness about our country's need for a world-class treatment and recovery system for people with mental illness. So far this season the NAMI Walks have raised $9,403,346.24! The Northern Virginia Walk alone raised $54,992.30!
Dominion Hospital is proud to be a part of these efforts, and the hospital’s presence at the Northern Virginia walk on September 24, 2016 was strong and lively. Nearly thirty Dominion Hospital employees and their families joined in the fight to end stigma and raise awareness. With 42 teams participating, Dominion Hospital came in 4th place, beating our fundraising goal by over 50%.
The stories that family members and former patients shared with the team along the walk, and as they stopped by the Dominion table, were humbling, heartwarming, and reminded everyone of why we do what we do!
Imagine...a world where everyone can find help and hope on their journey toward wellness!
