NAMI Green County – Trevor's Team 2017
"Trevor's Team" of NAMI Green County walked for the ninth consecutive year on October 1, 2017. This year the team boasted 40 walkers.....some in strollers. At this time "Trevor's Team" is in second place with donations over $8100. In a shared revenue program with Dane County, half of the proceeds will come back to NAMI Green County. The day was beautiful and pleasantly warm for walking. Almost 750 participants joined in bringing the current total for NAMI Dane County of around $167,000. Next year's walk will be held on Sunday, October 7, 2018. Donations for this year can still be accepted before November 30, 2017.
Trevor's Team will be walking for the 9th consecutive year at Olin Turville
Park in Madison, Wisconsin and will be representing our Green County
affiliate in the NAMI Dane County walk set for Sunday, October 1st, 2017.
In its 12th year, the Dane County walk begins with entertainment
and snacks at 10:30 am and the walk begins at noon and winds around
beautiful Lake Monona.
Trevor's Team was formed in 2009 to celebrate the memory of Trevor
Moen, son of Conni Bigler, one of our NAMI Green cCunty board members.
Trevor lost his battle with depression at the age of 29 in Oct of 2007.
He had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder in his late teens. The team
also walks for all of those who still suffer from severe mental illnesses.
