Every journey begins with that first step!   Please join us as we improve lives one step at a time. The 12th Annual NAMIWalks Dane County will be held on Sunday, October 1st, 2017 at Olin-Turville Park.  There is no cost to register, but we encourage walkers to ask their family, friends and co-workers to support them by making a donation.  Everyone is encouraged to sign up on line and raise funds before and after Walk Day if possible.  By signing up on line, your supporters are able to make donations with a credit card.  And, you can record any checks that you receive on your webpage to track your total raised. We will also have paper registration forms available in early August.  Please call 608-249-7188 to have one mailed to you. This year, all walkers will have the chance to earn free NAMIWalks clothing and gear! Every Walker who brings in $100 or more earns a free NAMIWalks t-shirt.  Walkers who raise higher amounts are eligible to earn an additional item, featured here
