Please join us for our 12th year of “virtual” walking to bring attention to those fighting the invisible illness… mental illness. Trevor’s Team is ready to continue the fight against stigma.
Since the safety of all walkers is most important, this year’s walk will be a “virtual” event. The walk will be held at the end of Mental Illness Awareness Week along with most of the other walks scheduled this fall. The date has been chosen nationwide as a “Day of Hope” on Saturday, October 10, 2020. NAMI Dane County will be live streaming from 10am to 1pm on their Facebook page. Trevor’s Team is asking all participants to either send in a photo in their NAMI Green County walk T-shirt and/or send in a video of “why they walk”. Trevor’s Team Captain, Conni Bigler will be posting to the NAMI GC and Trevor’s Team Facebook pages in the weeks before the event and some of these photos/videos may show up during the NAMI Dane County event.
Trevor’s Team was formed in 2009 to celebrate the memory of Trevor Moen, son of Conni Bigler, one of our NAMI Green County board members. Trevor lost his battle with depression at the age of 29 in October of 2007 and died by suicide. He had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder in his late teens and had struggled for several years. The team also walks to fight the stigma associated with mental illness and to support, educate and advocate for families and consumers.
If you are interested in joining Trevor’s Team, please contact Conni Bigler at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can also find her on Facebook if you have questions.
