NAMIWalks NYC engages over 5,000 individuals each year to celebrate recovery, promote awareness, fight discrimination, and raise funds to assist us in serving thousands of individuals and families living with mental illness each year. The funds raised at the event allow NAMI-NYC to provide free support, education, and outreach programs throughout New York City.

This year’s 13th annual 5K walk and run are taking place on Saturday, May 11th and kicks off at South Street Seaport.
For those wanting to do the 5K run, the registration fee is $45 and will go along East River Park. The run will end with enough time for you to participate in the walk as well!

NAMIWalks Competition

In honor of early registration and Giving Tuesday, we are going to be putting on a little competition and we hope you'll join in on the fun! Starting TODAY and running until Friday, December 7th, if you donate to yourself you get two (2) entries into the drawing for an amazing gift basket (more to come on that!!). For every person who donates to your page you get one (1) entry! You are definitely not going to want to miss out on this. 

Need help fundraising? It's all about getting personal!

1. When you ask for a donation, tell why NAMI-NYC and mental health are important to you.
2. Set a goal to recruit 10 new donors in honor of Giving Tuesday! Send a text to everyone in your contact list. Now is the time to start engaging people on this journey you’re embarking on.
3. Post about your NAMIWalks NYC Page on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and ask your network to support you with a donation. Always include the link to your fundraising page with each post.
