Join NAMI Maine's largest fundraising event of the year, NAMIWalks. We continue to prove our resilience and make the event our own. In 2021, will be walking “your way," be it in person on Saturday, October 9, 2021 or virtually through social media. The in-person event will be held in compliance with the local health department COVID-19 guidelines.
Our collective mental health needs are at their greatest now.
One in three U.S. adults reported experiencing depression or anxiety since the pandemic began. NAMI Maine’s programs and advocacy are needed more than ever, and with your help, we can support #MentalHealthForALL
What is NAMIWalks Your Way?
NAMIWalks Your Way will be an in-person event and/or a virtual experience, united with NAMIWalks across the country. NAMIWalks Your Way means putting one foot in front of the other, either actually or virtually. Participants get to use their creativity, with the main rule that we continue to advance towards our goal of Mainers have the information and resources needed to support their mental health.
Creativity Rules: What participants are doing on event day
Many participants will meet at Capitol Park Plaza but if unable, they can:
- Walk 7,000+ steps for a 5K their way
- Plan a craft day with their kids
- Hold a virtual bake-off with their team
- Practice self-care with a favorite hobby: yoga, gardening, knitting
- Do a 5K on the treadmill or stationary bike
- Create a safe and socially distanced stroll in their neighborhood
Take photos and videos and share your activity on your favorite social media with the link to your walk fundraising page and the hashtag #NotAlone #NAMIMaine. Together we can make a difference for people affected by mental illness.
The only limit of NAMIWalks Your Way is staying safe, healthy, and inspired. Share your ideas with us!
Remember: United, we insist on Mental Health for All.
