Many causes are easy to get behind based on their visibility alone. Want to throw support behind the fight against school bullying, the need to house sheltered pets, or even to help keep beaches clean? There's a quick Google search to find an event where you can dedicate your time and resources. But some causes aren’t as clearly visible and can often be deeply personal — like the need for mental health services for you and your loved ones. This Saturday, there is a chance to show up in support of one such nonprofit with the Fourth Annual NAMIWalks “Walking for Mental Health” event at Tradewinds Park South (3600 West Sample Rd., Coconut Creek). The National Alliance of Mental Illness is a grassroots advocacy group for those affected by mental disorders and illnesses. This weekend’s walk offers a chance to raise funds and awareness for the group's local affiliate with music, food, a kid zone, a pet parade, and featured speakers like Broward Sheriff Scott Israel and Chief Public Defender Howard Finkelstein. Funds raised will support county-wide educational programs and services. While there is no fee to walk, those who raise over $100 will receive an event shirt. Signup starts at 8 a.m. Visit namiwalks.org for more info.
