The walk that's so much more than a walk.

We are beyond excited to welcome you to NAMIWalks Your Way Chicago 2021.

As we emerge from a year of isolation and trauma, there is much to celebrate. And so much healing, hugging and hard work to be done.

Let's start with celebration! Our in-person 5K walk and lakefront event is back and better than ever. On September 18, 2021 we will gather safely in Jackson Park with comprehensive protocols in place. We know that the energy of this long-awaited gathering in support of mental health will be like never before. We'll also be offering a virtual option, so walkers can join in from home or from their favorite park or trail, wherever they are.

Step out and step up for mental wellness. Register now!
