NAMI GC is committed to keeping NAMIWalks participants, volunteers, and staff safe.
Therefore, we are strongly encouraging everyone joining us at Edgewater Park to:
- Wear masks, and
- Socially distance: 6 FT
For the second year in a row, NAMIWalks will be a little different — while making a lot of difference. In 2021, it’s still going to be “your way.” Along with our successful virtual option, NAMIWalks Your Way will be hosting an in-person event, in compliance with the local health department COVID-19 guidelines. We continue to prove our resilience and make 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, September 11 2021.
What is NAMIWalks Your Way?
On September 11, 2021, NAMIWalks Your Way Greater Cleveland will be a hybrid event which presents the best of both worlds. It allows those who are comfortable sharing in the camaraderie of an in-person event at Edgewater Park may do so. While giving those who are not, the opportunity to support Mental Health virtually. 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.
In-person at NAMIWalks Your Way, there will be:
- Line dancing
- Children's Activities
- 2.5 mile walk
Creativity Rules: What virtual 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
- Doing a 5K on the treadmill or stationary bike
- Creating a safe and socially distanced stroll in their neighborhood
Whether you are participating in-person or virtually, take photos and videos and share your activity on favorite social media with the link to your walk fundraising page and the hashtags #NotAlone and #NAMIWalksGreaterCleveland.
