EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Zinpro Corp. served as presenting sponsor for the 17th annual NAMIWalks Minnesota on Sept. 23, at Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis.
“At Zinpro, our mission is centered on health and wellness, and that includes mental health,” said Rob Sheffer, Zinpro president and CEO. “Each year, I’m proud that our employees here in Minnesota and around the world take part in this walk as a way of demonstrating our support for removing the stigma around mental illness and for the important advocacy work being done by NAMI Minnesota.”
NAMIWalks supports the efforts of NAMI Minnesota (National Alliance on Mental Illness) to provide education, support and advocacy for children and adults with mental illnesses and their families.
“This year the U.S. Surgeon General issued a report on the impact of loneliness and isolation,” said Sue Abderholden, executive director of NAMI Minnesota. “NAMI’s programs connect people and lets them know they are not alone. No one gets through a serious mental illness by themselves.”
NAMIWalks is a transformative opportunity in which participants reduce stress, build community, and find local support and services that can make a difference.
