WISCONSIN RAPIDS — The SPASH Boys Soccer and Wisconsin Rapids Boys Soccer joined together for their annual Kicking the Stigma mental health awareness campaign. This year, the soccer programs raised $6,150 for NAMI of Portage -Wood Counties.
On Oct. 5, prior to their game in Wisconsin Rapids, a check was presented to NAMI.
The Kicking the Stigma campaign raises awareness of mental health support systems in our community. Mental health is a forgotten condition that carries a stigma like no other health care need. Over the past two years, SPASH and Wisconsin Rapids have raised funds to support NAMI in our communities and help shine a light on mental health and its impact on our families, teams, and communities.
NAMI Portage-Wood Counties offers education, support and advocacy for those living with a mental health condition, their families, friends and community members.
