OAHU Charity Walkathon
Friday, December 18, 2020, 8:00 AM PST
Category: OAHU

The OAHU, PAHU and WVAHU Boards have teamed up with the NAHU Education Foundation to promote the NAHU Education Foundation Charity Walkathon, a campaign to raise money for a local charity that we feel is important to our chapters and our community.

Our Boards strongly support improving both resources and advocacy as well as removing the stigma around mental health.  We believe that now, more than ever we should all do what we can to support our communities and the strain of the holidays, pandemic or normal daily life stresses. That is why we have chosen NAMI of Oregon as the recipient of all donations received through our Chapter’s walkathon.

We will be holding our virtual Walkathon on December 18, 2020 and hope you are able to join us to support this wonderful cause. What we are asking of our members is:

  • Join your fellow members by walking that day in celebration of our organization while helping a local charity.  Make sure to take a selfie or a video and post it to your Social Media and tag OAHU!
  • DONATE!  Any donation you can make is going to make a different in someone’s life.  We hope that each member can raise $100. Our moto this is we are all in this together.  Let’s really show this by hitting our goal amount of $3,000!

We appreciate your participation in this important event!
