Loyola SSW Students Support National Alliance on Mental Illness in 5k Walk

‌Loyola University Chicago School of Social Work had a great team of 35 assembled to break the stigma of mental illness and to help spread awareness and fundraise. The team itself was able to collectively raise nearly $2200, adding to the overall $150,000 raised by all of the participants. Each Loyola team member was able to help raise funds through family and friends.

The Loyola Team was initially established by NAMI-GC summer interns Amanda Creden, Antonise Hammock, and Sophia Loupakos, who were joined by School of Social Work Student Organization (SSWSO) board members Kathleen Monforton, Kelsey Greenwood, and Lisa Toban during the Fall semester to help promote the walk for Loyola students.
