On October 9, NAMIWalks Your Way activities get underway throughout the region and across the country.
NAMIWalks Your Way Philly returns as an in-person event this year, as well as a virtual experience designed to help limit the spread of COVID-19. NAMIWalks Your Way Philly participants can take part in the event however they like, walking a 5K with others at Friends Hospital, through their neighborhoods, or virtually. A headcount cap based on COVID-19 and facility guidelines is anticipated for the in-person event; participants should visit Namiwalks.org for updates as walk day nears. Additional virtual events are available through NAMIWalks Your Way Main Line, NAMIWalks Your Way New Jersey, and other area NAMI chapters; visit Namiwalks.org for a complete list of locations nationwide.
NAMIWalks are designed to increase awareness about individuals with mental health challenges and raise funds for NAMI organizations. Proceeds fund mental heath support, education, advocacy, public awareness, and programming that addresses the mental health needs of community members and replaces stigma with understanding. Details and updates about the NAMIWalks Your Way are available online at Namiwalks.org .
