Where do we park?

  • We have secured FREE parking for our participants by Furman University Amphitheater, located by the lake. 
  • To find parking, use the main entrance and follow the NAMI Greenville signs (on your left) look for NAMIWalks volunteers in an NEON vest for instructions on where to park on Walk Day.  

Are there restrooms at the park?

Yes! There are 2 permanent bathrooms at the entrance of the Amphitheater facing the parking lot and there are restrooms along the walk path around the lake.


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 whole team?

No, each participant needs to check themselves in and pick up their wristband themselves.

Do I need to register to walk?

  • We encourage you to register ONLINE now.
  • Registration QR Codes will be available on Walk Day and our volunteers will help get you registered quickly so you can enjoy the event!

The Walk

Can I run instead of walk?

We are historically 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! 

Below, you'll see a map showing the lake location in relation to the Walk start and other activities!

Are strollers allowed?

Yes!  Strollers and wagons are allowed.  We are family-friendly and hope to see lots of smiling youngsters on May 20th!  

Are dogs allowed?

Yes!  Leashed, well-behaved dogs are allowed.  Please remember to clean up after your pet.

**Although we love dogs at NAMIWalks, please note that there will be approximately 500 people in attendance at the event - if your dog is not child-friendly or is not able to handle moderate noise/crowds/other dogs, please consider whether bringing your pup to this event is the right choice.***

Fun Stuff

What types of activities are available at the Walk?

We'll have sponsorship/community resource booths, free snacks, bottled water, music, face painting, sno-cones and more!

Should I bring food?

That's up to you! We'll have granola bars, ice cream, fruit and water stations.


Can I donate offline or send in my check/cash donations prior to the Walk?

YES! We accept checks mailed to 130 Industrial Drive, Suite A, Greenville, SC 29607 – please makes checks payable to NAMI Greenville SC and 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 the Upstate!

How can I donate on Walk Day?

You will be asked at check-in if you'd like to make a donation. 

You can also log into to make a donation right from your mobile device!

We accept the following forms of payment on Walk Day:  Cash, Check, Debit/Credit/Paypal

Please make checks payable to: NAMIWalks Upstate South Carolina (If you want the donations to go to an individual or team OTHER THAN YOURSELF, please include it in the subject line!)

Can I donate after Walk Day?

YES! We will accept donations to NAMIWalks Upstate South Carolina up to 90 days after our event.


I raised $100 or More....I'm getting a Shirt, Right? 

Yes! When you check-in you will receive a blue ticket to take to the t-shirt table to redeem! Please hand in your ticket to volunteer to receive your NAMIWalks t-shirt.

Sizes are not guaranteed - although we do our best to have a large variety of sizes available it is impossible to predict what the needs will be on Walk Day. T-Shirts are distributed on a first-come first-serve basis to eligible walkers.

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.
