May 22, A United Day of Hope
For the second year in a row, NAMIWalks will be a little different — while making a lot of difference. It’s going to be “your way,” just like 2020’s phenomenally successful events — as we prove our resilience by stretching our limits anew and making the event our own.
Our collective mental health needs are at their greatest now. One in three U.S. adults reported experiencing depression or anxiety since the pandemic began. NAMI’s programs and advocacy are needed more than ever, and with your help, we are pleased to present NAMIWalks Your Way on Saturday, May 22, 2021,
What is NAMIWalks Your Way?
On May 22, 2021, NAMIWalks will continue to have virtually virtual experience but we are excited to announce our in person preferred parks where you can gather, united with NAMIWalks across the country. Please note we are not taking over the entire parks, look for the NAMI volunteers and Pop up tents. NAMIWalks Your Way means instead of putting one foot in front of the other, you get to put one feat in front of the other: participants get to use their creativity, with the main rule that we continue to advance towards our goal by leaps and bounds. The choice is yours on how you want to make this spring’s event fit into this spring’s reality.
Creativity Rules: What participants are doing on event day
- Walking 7,000+ steps for a 5K their way
- Planning a craft day with their kids
- Holding a virtual bake-off with their team
- Practicing self-care with a favorite hobby: yoga, gardening, knitting
