2022 Honorary Chairs

Michael & Duper Pallotta


Pallotta Ford

NAMI is glad to have Michael and Duper Pallotta as the 2022 Honorary Chairs for the Walk and 5K for Wellness. With Michael as the President of Pallotta Ford, and the couple together supporting many initiatives in the local community, we are eager to have them involved. Here are a few words from Michael and Duper, our 2022 Honorary Chairs:


Nonprofit organizations strengthen communities by providing educational, health and social services that our citizens need. This is an example as to why we love staying active within the Wooster community, supporting local organizations- especially nonprofits. We have, combined, served on many committees and boards. 


We would like to help people to understand our community members who have mental illness, bipolar disorder, depression, PTSD, and anxiety. We are glad to help change the stigma, discrimination and the negative impact that it has on people affected by mental health conditions. Peer support, services to families, suicide prevention and postvention services are just some of the services NAMI provides. This is why we have proudly decided to support them, and we want you to support them too! 


Please join us On May 7th, 2022 for the NAMI Walk and 5K for Wellness Fundraiser located at the OARDC campus.
