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 Central Texas' programs and advocacy are needed more than ever, and with your help, we are pleased to present NAMIWalks Your Way Central Texas on Saturday, September 25, 2021.

After consulting with the city, our venue, and guidance from Austin Public Health, our leadership team made the hard decision to shift our walk to a fully virtual event this year. The great news is, we can still celebrate our successes and mental health as a community even if we aren’t all together.


What is NAMIWalks Your Way? 

On September 25, 2021, NAMIWalks Central Texas will be a virtually virtual experience, united with NAMIWalks across the country. 

Walking 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 fall's event fit into this fall'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 
  • Doing a 5K on the treadmill or stationary bike 
  • Creating a safe and socially distanced stroll in their neighborhood  

Take photos and videos and share your activity on your favorite social media with the link to your walk fundraising page and the hashtag #NAMIWalksCentralTX. Together we can make a difference for people affected by mental illness.
