NAMI Benefits from Fourth Annual Depression and Mental Illness Dice Run

On Saturday, July 14, NAMI was the beneficiary of the 4th Annual Depression and Mental Illness Dice Run. The dice run was held to raise awareness for individuals affected by mental illness. Participants started the Dice Run at Harley-Davidson of Erie. Approximately 80 bikers registered for the dice run, which coincided with Harley-Davidson of Erie’s annual Bike Fest. At the end of the dice run, there was an after-party at Scooters with food, drinks, and a chance to win prizes.

“The Dice Run is a great, fun way to raise awareness for mental illness,” Denise L. Kolivoski, MBA, NAMI’s Executive Director. “We’re so grateful to benefit from such a great event and Missy Rininger does such a good job organizing everything.”
All proceeds from the event will stay in Erie County to benefit NAMI of Erie County’s free educational programs and services that support individuals and families living with mental health challenges. NAMI’s evidence-based programs provide individuals and families with the skills they need on the road to recovery, providing them hope for a better tomorrow.
