Dear Friend,

We hope you are having a happy and healthy start to 2023. We at NAMI DuPage work tirelessly to support the community’s mental health needs, reaching nearly 20,000 individuals annually.

On May 6, we will come together for our Shine a Light Gala at the Marriott Naperville. This year’s Masquerade theme encourages guests to show their authentic selves. Masking describes the act of hiding or suppressing symptoms of a mental health condition. We want to shine a light on the individuals behind the masks!

In June, we will be hosting our annual Run for the Mind – with a new optional addition of a color run! The Run is a family-friendly event with race options, including a 5k race, color run, and diaper dash.

Both events will help us raise funds and awareness to enhance NAMI DuPage’s work. With your support, NAMI DuPage hopes to:

  • Increase mental health services for our DuPage community
  • Increase staffing capacity resulting in improved quality of services
  • Increase outreach resulting in awareness of our programs and services

We hope you will consider joining us at this event or even providing sponsorship or an advertisement!

On behalf of the community we serve, thank you for your support of NAMI DuPage, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Geri Kerger
Executive Director
