A multitude of folk showed up for a Beach walk today to raise awareness and support for NAMI. That is the National Alliance on Mental Illness. All sorts of groups showed up and even the dogs could sign up. Our Church of the Palms participated in the three mile walk on Coligny Beach, Hilton Head today.
A pleasant walk on a beautiful sunny morning at the water’s edge – healthy, meaningful and for a good cause. A dozen or so bottleneck dolphins were frolicking and jumping beside us in the waves to the delight of the walkers. NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization providing support, education, advocacy and public awareness so that individuals and families affected by mental illness can build better lives. So far $47,000 was raised at the event.
After singing the Star Spangled Banner we headed for the sand and shells with a mild 65 F degrees.
