Each year, many programs participate in a local NAMIWalk to support mental health awareness in their community. This year, while our collective mental health needs are at their greatest, NAMIWalks is changing it up to bring this great awareness event to you!
NAMIWalks Your Way: A Virtual Experience
On May 30, NAMIWalks will be a virtual experience and joined by NAMIWalks across the country. NAMIWalks Your Way means what it sounds like: participants get to make NAMIWalks their own. You can walk a 5K—through your neighborhood, around your backyard, on your treadmill. Or you can do something else meaningful and fun to celebrate our virtual walk day.
