Welcome to the NAMI GBCAN Team fundraising page.  Please join our team for this year's NAMIWalks event on May 13, 2017!  We are walking to raise awareness of mental illness and to raise funds for the important work of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness.  Please donate to NAMI Greater Boston Consumer Advocacy Network [GBCAN] through this site and support peer-run programming!


NAMI is a lifeline for many people and families who need a place to turn. Our affiliate –NAMI GBCAN - is the only peer run affiliate in Massachusetts. Your donation will directly support our peer recovery community. It will help to continue free training and supports. It will also ensure peers have the means to advocate for themselves and stay involved in local, state and federal issues that affect the entire mental health community.


Opening Doors to the Arts [ODA], run by GBCAN, is one of the programs supported by your contribution. ODA (www.openingdoorstothearts.org) focuses on the importance of social engagement through exposure to the arts.  It provides peers in the Boston area with free tickets to art, music and theatre events.


JOIN OUR TEAM (click to register) and walk with us on Saturday, May 13, 2017.  Support us by making a donation to the team, or to one of our team members. Donations on this page are fast, secure, easy and tax deductible.  All funds raised directly support the mission of NAMI and the work of NAMI GBCAN.


Your participation and support truly mean a lot to our GBCAN team members! 


Thanks again for your support!
