Spring Hill College’s famous Avenue of the Oaks was the pleasant setting for a fundraiser for the Mobile Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

Honorary Chair and Mobile City Council President Gina Gregory was on hand to start the fun walk at 9:00 a.m. this morning that began the day’s activities.

Walkers started at Saint Joseph’s Chapel on the college grounds and continued under the centuries-old oak trees of the school that is also the setting for Spring Hill College’s commencement ceremonies.

Including a DJ and refreshments, organizers also sponsored health screenings and an awards ceremony at the event.
