What If It Rains?
MENTAL HEALTH is important RAIN OR SHINE so you can count on the Walk ON - we won't let a little rain stop us! If we are experiencing severe weather conditions, we will email all registered participants, as well as share on our social media pages and website.
I registered online, do I need to check-in at the walk?
Yes! All participants must check-in on Walk Day.
I'm a Team Captain, can I check in my entire team?
No, each participant needs to check themselves in and pick up their wristband themselves.
Do I need to register to walk?
Yes! Everyone walking must register (but don't worry, its free!). Registration at the Walk is from 8:00 AM to 8:45 AM. We encourage you to register ONLINE now. If you are not registered by 2 pm on Friday, November 4th, you will need to do same-day registration at the Walk.
Registration forms will be available on Walk Day and our volunteers will help get you registered quickly so you can enjoy the event!
Can I run instead of walk?
We are a non-competitive 5k walk, so the majority of people will be walkers. If you really want to run though- go for it! If you are running, please run off to the side and be considerate of our walkers!
I'm not sure that I/someone I am walking with can finish a 5k, but I/we still want to walk. What can I do?
We've got you covered! If you are unable to complete the full 5k, there is a cut through short cut halfway through the walk.
Are strollers allowed?
Yes! Strollers and wagons are allowed. We are family-friendly and hope to see lots of families on November 5th!
What types of activities are available at the Walk?
We'll have: community resource booths, free snacks, bottled water, music with Digital VIbez, live band, Kids fun zone, Kona Ice, face painter, and other activities from our sponsors!
Should I bring food?
That's up to you! We'll have bagels, snack bars, fruit and water.
Can I donate offline or send in my check/cash donations prior to the Walk?
YES! We accept checks mailed to 5205 Greenwood Avenue, Suite 110, West Palm Beach, FL 33407 - please include the name of the Walker that the donation should be applied to.
Can I donate at the Walk?
Yes - we encourage everyone to donate at the walk! NAMIWalks is designed to be a fun and inspiring day for all, but reaching our fundraising goal is equally important, as it allows us to continue and/or expand important NAMI programs throughout Palm Beach County County!
How can I donate on Walk Day?
You can make a donation the day of at our donation tent. You can also log into www.namiwalks.org/palmbeachcounty to make a donation right from your mobile device! We accept cash, check and credit cards at the walk. Please make checks payable to: NAMIWalks Palm Beach County (If you want the donations to go to an individual or team OTHER THAN YOURSELF, please include it in the subject line!)
I raised $100 or More....I'm getting a Shirt, Right?
Yes! When you check-in you will receive your t-shirt! Although we do our best to have a large variety of sizes available (from Youth Small through Adult 3XL) it is impossible to predict what the needs will be on Walk Day.
I have 3 people who donated $100 each to me (or my team) - do they get shirts?
No. Shirts are only for individual fundraisers who raise at least $100.
Our team has 5 people and we raised a combined $500, do we get 5 shirts?
No. Shirts are for individual fundraisers who raise at least $100.
