Join us for the largest event raising awareness about mental illnesses in Minnesota! When you walk with NAMI, you join a celebration of people living with mental illnesses and their familes. 

Register today and join us as we improve lives and our communities one step at a time.

NAMIWalks Minnesota is a 5k walk beginning and ending in Minnehaha Park. The walk route travels north on West River Road, then turns around and goes back to Minnehaha Park. The parkway will be closed for the event and the route is accessible to people who use wheel chairs or scooters to get around. The 'down and back' nature of the event also lets walkers turn around at any point - making the walk as long or short as they would like. 

Before the walk, a resource fair and other activities including a kid's tent and live music will begin at 11:30 AM. A brief program with speakers will begin at 12:30 PM. The walk begins at 1:00 PM and takes the average walker about an hour to complete. NAMIWalks Minnesota welcomes leashed dogs to participate in the walk, with a Dog Zone with water bowls and treats.

NAMIWalks is a rain or shine event!
