2019 NAMIWalk Team



Last year, the 2019 Austin AMFT NAMIWalk was a huge success! Thanks to our team leader and board member, Cat Donohoe, we met our goal of raising $1,000 for NAMI Central Texas. NAMIWalks Central Texas had 2,100+ walkers and raised a total of $334,964. The 2019 walk had the largest turnout and donation total to date and was the 5th largest walk in the country.
