As NAMIWalks Summit County is celebrating its 13th anniversary, we invite you to take part in NAMI’s largest and most successful mental health awareness and fundraising event in the country. We'll be walking the beautiful U of A campus, but in case of inclement weather we will be able to walk inside of the Field House.

Some of our festivities on Walk Day:

   Jerry Craig Executive Director of Summit County Drug and Mental Health Board is our Honorary Chair and will cut the ribbon beginning our Walk


Kids:  Make sure to stop by for pumpkin painting at the Kids table!  Take your pumpkin home with you! Free fall crafts and giveaways while supplies last.

91.3 THE SUMMIT will provide broadcasting and music at the Walk-what better way to bring attention to our mission-Thank You Garrett Hart!

The singing of Change Direction, written by Pastor Jeffrey A. Dennis, sung by Jennifer Mekel 

Local musician Gerard Dusa

Choices Social Center will provide fresh pastries at the food table

Starbucks Coffee, Hot Chocolate and Tea also at the food table
