National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) Annual Walk

August 28 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

NAMIWalks Your Way

For the second year in a row, NAMIWalks will be a little different — while making a lot of difference. In 2021, it’s still going to be “your way.” Along with our successful virtual option, NAMIWalks Your Way will be hosting an in-person event, in compliance with the local health department COVID-19 guidelines. We continue to prove our resilience and make the event our own.

Our collective mental health needs are at their greatest now. One in three U.S. adults reported experiencing depression or anxiety since the pandemic began. NAMI’s programs and advocacy are needed more than ever, and with your help, we are pleased to present NAMIWalks Your Way on Saturday, August 28, 2021

What is NAMIWalks Your Way? 

NAMIWalks Your Way will be an in-person event and/or a virtual experience, united with NAMIWalks across the country. NAMIWalks Your Way means putting one foot in front of the other, either actually or virtually. Participants get to use their creativity, with the main rule that we continue to advance towards our goal by leaps and bounds.

Creativity Rules: What participants are doing on event day

Many participants will meet at Belle Isle Park but if unable, they can:

  • Walk 7,000+ steps for a 5K their way
  • Plan a craft day with their kids
  • Hold a virtual bake-off with their team
  • Practice self-care with a favorite hobby: yoga, gardening, knitting
  • Do a 5K on the treadmill or stationary bike
  • Create a safe and socially distanced stroll in their neighborhood

Take photos and videos and share your activity on your favorite social media with the link to your walk fundraising page and the hashtag #NotAlone #MentalHealthForAll and #MINAMIWalks2021. Together we can make a difference for people affected by mental illness.

The only limit of NAMIWalks Your Way is staying safe, healthy, and inspired. Share your ideas with us!
