The Beloved Church is a multi-racial community committed to the vision of what Dr. King called, "the beloved community," a world in which everyone is valued, loved, treated with justice and dignity and has what they need. We believe that people with mental illness and are deeply beloved.
HOW WE'RE DOING IT:
In 2020 due to Covid-19 NAMI-MN is holding "NAMIWALKS YOUR WAY" rather than the traditional 5K held at Minnehaha Falls. The Beloved Church is hosting a physically distanced, grab and go style NAMIWALKS YOUR WAY event at our location on the East Side of Saint Paul (1965 Sherwood Ave E. St. Paul, MN 55119).
Drop in any time between 11 am and 3 pm on our walk day (September 26) and we'll have resources and prizes available for both registered team members and folks who just drop by.
You do not need to be a member of the church, or even a religious person to participate. Our goal is to do justice for our neighbors with mental illness by raising money for NAMI, sharing resources and opening up opportunities to talk about mental illness in ways that decrease prejudice.
All funds raised directly support the mission of NAMI to provide support, education, and advocacy to individuals and families right here in Minnesota. Each walker who receives $100 in donations will receive a t-shirt from NAMI-MN.
Together, we are moving closer to a world where all people affected by mental illness live healthy, fulfilling lives supported by a community that cares. Mental Health for All.
