Join us for a United Day of Hope
This Spring, all roads lead to NAMIWalks Your Way: A United Day of Hope with the destination as always being Mental Health for All.
Last year, with so many people sheltering in place and looking out for their safety, we shifted to a virtual event, NAMIWalks Your Way, which encouraged people to use their creativity and participate however they could given their situation. Thanks to so many amazing participants, we far exceeded expectations, which were already high.
Let’s keep the momentum going this Spring — as we unite across the country to insist on hope and celebrate Mental Health for All. Register Now!
On the day of the event, NAMIWalks participants, mental health advocates, and NAMI partners will step up our strength and energy even further. There are thousands of ways to reach a goal — and every one is yours. Together with you, NAMIWalks remains one of the top mental health walk series in the country.
Mental Health for All — and Always. We were encouraged in 2020 to discover our participants’ remarkable resilience. Whatever reality was in place when the event was to take place, our NAMIWalks community found a way to reach their goal: Skipping rope, baking a cake, making people laugh with a stand-up act, or perhaps staging their own personal walk with some friends and family in their neighborhood. Complete with masks, of course, social distancing, and all necessary precautions.
Even if you’re isolated geographically, we’ll be united in our hearts. Depending on the local programming on May 22, you can watch inspirational, engaging livestreams or join in a mental health conversation with other like-minded crusaders. Register Now!
Be a local part of a national movement
NAMIWalks’ public, active display of support for people affected by mental health conditions is one important way we are changing how Americans view people with a mental illness. NAMIWalks brings together individuals and businesses to help raise funds, combat stigma, and promote awareness. As NAMI’s largest and most successful mental health awareness and fundraising event, we raise more than $100,000 in Greater Toledo alone to support local programs and initiatives that improve the lives of persons affected by mental illness right here at home.
