Nationwide mental health walks
Mental health walks organized by NAMI, NEDA, AFSP, and the IOCDF were held virtually across the U.S. in mid-October, spurring many from Rogers to lace up their shoes and hit the pavement. The slideshow above shows off just a few ways in which Rogers team members participated in this year’s mental health walks.
