First and foremost I want to thank all of you for supporting this event! I acquired NAMI as an official client in February 2018, but I have known them for over five years now and hold them dear to my heart. I really believe in their mission to raise awareness of mental illness, and I’m excited to share this experience with you all on this walk.
Walk Date: Saturday, April 27th, 2019
Meeting Time: 8:30am
Meeting Place: Cabin John Regional Park – Parking Lot
10900 Westlake Drive Bethesda, MD 20817
Look for orange balloons hanging from my white car in the Parking Lot, to represent Team DDME.
I’ll have coffee and donuts waiting!
Walk begins at 9:30am, ends around 11:30am
Weather Forecast: Cloudy/Showers, high 74º low 56º, 40% chance rain
What to wear: Athletic clothes, comfy sneakers, and a light sweater/raincoat (Please wear Orange) Walkers who raised $100 are given NAMI T-shirts. I have orange raincoats from Amazon if anyone wants to buy from me $15.
Optional Brunch Afterwards at 12pm Noon:
4435 Willard Ave, Chevy Chase, MD 20815
Brunch Menu includes bottomless mimosas: https://www.liasrestaurant.com/brunch
Please bring $50-60 in cash per person, so that we don’t have to split the check
There is a parking garage right next to the restaurant, but I can pay for an Uber XL to transport anyone to brunch and back to the park, for those of you that prefer not to drive. The UberXL fits up to 6 people, so let me know in advance!
