April 12, 2014, Shelby Park, Nashville - The NAMI Davidson Walk featuring Middle Tennessee Golden Retriever Rescue. It's good to remember how important pets can be to Mental health.
A Celebration of Mental Wellness at the
NAMI Davidson Walk, 5K & Village

Everything combined for the ultimate day of mental wellness. Premier Sponsor Vanderbilt Behavioral Health anchored our village of sponsors and village vendors. The Foothill Productions Team and talent kept the music flowing. Walk Team Captains brought color into the day through capes, neon shirts, pom poms and silly hats. Runners of almost every age started and finished at the Riverside shelter for the new 5K course. Our volunteers made it all happen from the onset of their day at 4 AM to the close at 11 AM. Dogs were front and center with the arrival of Middle Tennessee Golden Retriever Rescue who were joined by dogs of every size and shape. To top it all off there was sunshine with a light breeze, cool in the morning for the 5K and warming comfortably for the walk and village.
