Get Out Your Walking Shoes to Make Great Strides for Mental Health on April 21

Get Out Your Walking Shoes to Make Great Strides for Mental Health on April 21

SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) April 12, 2007

In 2007, thousands of concerned citizens in more than 60 communities across the nation will join the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Campaign for the Mind of America. They will walk together to raise money and awareness about our country’s need for a world-class treatment and recovery system for people with mental illnesses.

The NAMI San Diego 2/5K walk/run will be held on Saturday, April 21, 2007 in Balboa Park. In past years, this walk has proven almost magical, with over a thousand people coming together to learn more about mental illnesses, to develop stronger ties with one another, and to celebrate a beautiful day with friends and loved ones.

To put it in perspective, more than 244,000 people are living with mental illness in San Diego alone. In the state of California, 600,000 children, adults and elderly are in need of mental health services that aren’t readily available. In our nation, one in five people will suffer from a serious mental illness in their lifetime.

Your participation in the walk can help the many who are in desperate need of diagnosis and care. NAMI San Diego is our city’s own voice on mental illness. Your support of this organization shines a light on the stigma attached to mental illness — a stigma that comes from fear due to lack of knowledge. NAMI San Diego is at the center of education, support and advocacy regarding these brain disorders.

Mark Saturday, April 21 at 8:00 a.m. on your calendar — sign up for the NAMI San Diego Walk today. There will be music, entertainment, a health/resource fair and a chance to make a difference one step at a time.

New York a Natural for a Great Golf Getaway

New York a Natural for a Great Golf Getaway

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) May 12, 2010

It came as no surprise to New Yorkers last year when one network golf analyst announced that “New York State has more beautiful golf courses than any other spot on earth.”

Many of the state’s outstanding courses have joined together to form the New York Golf Trail, which offers affordable golf packages complete with convenient hotel accommodations. While the Big Apple gets most of the attention from out-of-state travelers, upstate destinations offer their own unique regional charm and attractions, as well as some remarkable golf courses.

The New York Golf Trail was established with this in mind. Trail courses are clustered in and around five of the state’s most well-known and popular destinations…

Saratoga, with its famed racetrack, lively Broadway Avenue and Saratoga National Golf Club, ranked by Golf Digest as one of America’s Top 100 public courses. Saratoga is the August place to be!
Lake Placid, offering visitors year-round Olympic experiences like bobsledding, as well as the majestic Adirondack mountains, a bustling Main Street with shopping and restaurants and great golfing on courses like The Whiteface Club & Resort on Mirror Lake.
Cooperstown, home to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and the prestigious Leatherstocking Golf Course on Otesaga Lake, voted 55th Best Golf Resort in the US by readers of Condé Nast Traveler Magazine.
The Finger Lakes, boasting hundreds of wineries, numerous scenic drives and championship courses, including the renowned Bristol Harbour Resort overlooking Canandaigua Lake. The course record belongs to Jack Nicklaus.
The Lower Adirondacks, with charming towns like Old Forge and Hamilton (home to Colgate University and its Seven Oaks Golf Club) and the only Nicklaus Design golf course in upstate New York, Timber Banks Golf Course.
The northeast’s most scenic golf trail includes 15 courses in all, including classic layouts by some of the game’s greatest designers — Robert Trent Jones, Donald Ross and Seymour Dunn. Their innovative work offer novices and pros alike a rewarding day on the course amid spectacular settings. Majestic pines, gorgeous lakes and abundant wildlife make New York a golfer’s paradise.

Golf Trail reservation agents make all advance tee times and hotel arrangements, enabling golfers to organize a memorable trip with just one call or e-mail. Golf trail lodging partners include Marriott Residence Inn, Courtyard by Marriott, Hampton Inn & Suites, Hilton Garden Inn and Wingate by Wyndham.

The New York Golf Trail gets the lowest possible golf and lodging rates, while saving golfers time and effort. The trail is playing to rave reviews:

“Our golf trip was absolutely amazing. It far exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful, wonderful time and we’re planning on coming back next year. The courses were stunning. We were not disappointed in any aspect of the trip. Thank you very much.”

— Andrew, Ontario

“I’ll be recommending the New York Golf Trail to friends. This is a nice service that you provide, putting it all together for us like you do. We had a great weekend.”

— James, Ottawa
