  2. Are a Team Captain dropping off donations; or
  3. Are an Individual Walker not on a team dropping off donations; or
  4. Are picking up your #RocktheWalk2019 Hat.

If you are not any of the following, you are all set!  Stop by our vendor and affiliate tables, take fun photos at the Photo Booth, or sign our “Why Do You Walk?” banner!
 

How do I get a NAMIWalks t-shirt?

T-shirts are only for walkers who have raised $100 or more on their personal fundraising page.  You should only stop by the t-shirt table if you:

  1. Are a Team Captain (or designee) picking up shirts for your teammates; or
  2. Are an Individual Walker not on a team picking up your t-shirt.

If you drop-off money at the Walk that equals $100.00 or more, our volunteers at registration will give you a ticket that you can turn in to get your t-shirt.
Extra t-shirts will be available at 11:00 am.
Won’t be at Rash Field on Walk Day but still want your t-shirt?  Contact Danielle at connection@namimd.org and we’ll work something out!
