What is a Virtual Walker?

Virtual Walkers raise awareness and funds for our crucial programs and services just like a regular walker. In other years, virtual walkers don’t attend the actual Walk Day in person and instead celebrate their accomplishments by doing something else they enjoy or by walking or running at a place of their choice. This year, everyone is a virtual walker!  Choose a meaningful activity to do with your family, a small group of friends in a safe, socially distanced manner or do something on your own.  

When should I log in or check in?

Stay tuned for the finalized virtual schedule!

How do I join a team?

You may register as an individual, join a team or create a team through the registration process. If the team you are joining is not listed, try searching for just a few letters or contact the Team Captain.

 

How do I solicit people to join me or support me? 

When you register, you will get a personal webpage. Then you can email or otherwise provide the link to people to click the “support me” button. 

 

If you are a team captain, you will also get a team webpage.  You can email or otherwise provide the link to people to “join my team” and “support my team”. 

 

How do I collect money? 

Please encourage your team members and your supporters to make their donations online.  For people who are not comfortable with online giving, they can mail their checks to: NAMI NJ, 1562 Rt. 130, North Brunswick, NJ 08902.  Be sure to have them make the check payable to NAMI New Jersey and to indicate the person or team that should be credited with the donation. Alternatively, if you are a team captain or individual walker, you can instruct people to mail checks to you and you can send them together, with a listing of each gift, to NAMI NJ’s office. 

 

How do I customize my page?

Once you register or login, you can click on the “resources” tab on the top! It’ll take you to a list of documents that will explain how to customize either your personal fundraising or team page.  In general, click on the pencil icon and that will let you edit the text, add a picture etc. 

 

How do I customize my link?

You can click on the “Your Page” tab on the top! If you scroll down, there will be a “settings” button that will give you the option of customizing your page link. 

 

How do I connect my social media to my page?

At the bottom of “Your Page”, there are links to various social media. Just click on the link!

Where can I mail my donations before and after the Walk?
