On October 10, NAMIWalks is hosting NAMIWalks Your Way Philly, a virtual, nationwide experience designed to help limit the spread of COVID-19. NAMIWalks Your Way participants can take part in the event however they like; they can walk a 5K through their neighborhood, hold a virtual bake-off with their team, plan a craft day with their kids, or do something else meaningful and fun to celebrate the virtual walk day.
NAMIWalks are designed to increase awareness about individuals with mental health challenges and raise funds for NAMI organizations. Proceeds from NAMIWalks Your Way Philly fund education and support programming that addresses mental the health needs of community members, replaces stigma with understanding, and helps thousands of families and individuals each year.
In 2019, NAMIWalks across the country collectively raised more than $12.2 million for mental heath support, education, advocacy, and public awareness. Details and updates about the NAMIWalks Greater Philadelphia Your Way are available online at Namiwalks.org.
