Fight the stigma of mental illness

Submitted By Newark Police Department

Officer Neithercutt of the Newark Police Department is inviting the community to participate in a special event! Please join Team Newark PD as they ride 60 miles to support programs and research funded by NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

Team Newark is a group of Newark Police Officers who work to promote and raise funds for all types of charitable organizations. Previous rides have raised funds for the Special Olympics, and the Police Chaplaincy of Sonoma County. Team membership varies from ride to ride based on schedules, but usually consists of Officers, Sergeants, and sometimes, the Chief of Police.

All NAMIBikes events include multiple distances, family rides, kidÕs events, music, food and more. Most events are road courses, but some feature mountain bike rides, BMX courses and terrain parks. From the time you arrive at check-in until you load your bike on your car, we will keep you well-fed and well-hydrated!

Click the below link to view the Newark Team webpage, then click on Òjoin teamÓ if you feel up to riding alongside them, or Òsponsor this teamÓ if youÕd like to support their goal of raising $1,000 for NAMI!

Register with the Newark Team or individually by Oct. 31. For more information or to register, visit www.namicalifornia.org. To support Officer Neithercutt, visit http://my.e2rm.com/TeamPage.aspx?teamID=480759&langPref=en-CA&Referrer=direct%2fnone
