The Washington state chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Health hopes national awareness will inspire record participation in its efforts to raise money and support, according to a press release.

At 9:30 a.m. May 18 the state chapter of NAMI will hold its ninth annual NAMI Walk to raise money and awareness for mental illness. The 5K walk will begin at Marina Park in Kirkland and follow the shoreline of Lake Washington to Carillon Park and loop back. There is still time for participants to register and form a team, or just join the festivities at the finish line.

Register or donate at www.namiwalks.org. Individual and team fundraising pages are updated consistently. The state chapter of NAMI has set a goal of $225,000 and as of April 12, 25 percent of the goal had been raised. Registration starts at 8 a.m. May 18; the walk begins at 9:30 a.m.
