Walk Day Timeline

11:00 am: NAMIWalks is set up & ready for you! Come hang out in the park and explore our sponsors’ tables and all the activities. Be sure to stop by the Tree of Hope to add your leaf, stop by the Art Space to paint a sign or take a photo, or visit a food truck. If you have already registered online, you DO NOT need to check in anywhere. Only Team Captains and brand-new Walkers need to visit the Check-In Building. If you are a Team Captain dropping off cash or check donations, check in anytime between now and the start of the Walk.

11:45 am: Our program begins with the band Cross Current, “a soulful blend of timeless classics and fresh hits delivered in the laid-back feel of the islands.” Our emcee Bryan Piatt from KARE 11 will kick things off.

12:30 pm: NAMIWalks Program begins: Join us at the pavilion and be inspired by speakers sharing why they walk.

1:00 pm: The Walk begins at 1pm on the dot! Pass under the archway and show your excitement to be part of our community of mental health advocates. Do what the Minnesota RollerGirls tell you, and gather under the archway! This is one of our best photo opportunities to show the world how many Minnesotans care about mental health, so come together and show your support!

2:00 pm: Cross Current begins their second set. Dance, meet new people, and enjoy the supportive community around you. Our executive director Sue Abderholden always says that Minnesotans won’t dance in the daylight. Prove her wrong, won’t you? As walkers return, fresh kettle corn awaits!

3:00 pm: Walk clean-up. You and your team are welcome to stay at Minnehaha Park and keep celebrating your time together. Don't mind the staff and volunteers beginning to take down signs and pack up.
