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 Jacksonville on Saturday, October 9, 2021
What is NAMIWalks Jacksonville?
NAMIWalks Jacksonville will be an in-person event, in compliance with the local health department COVID-19 guidelines, with a virtual experience, united with NAMIWalks across the country. Many participants will meet at the Winston Family YMCA to walk a 5K on the Northbank Riverwalk for mental health awareness and fundraising. On the day of the event, NAMIWalks participants, mental health advocates, and NAMI partners will step up our strength and energy even further. Many NAMIWalks events across the nation will coincide on October 9, 2021. Together with you, NAMIWalks remains one of the top mental health walk series in the country.
What is NAMIWalks Your Way?
NAMIWalks Your Way means putting one foot in front of the other, either actually or virtually. 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 and where you want to make this year’s event fit into this year’s reality.
Creativity Rules: What participants are doing on event day for the virtual "Your Way":
- Walk 7,000+ steps for a 5K their way
- Hold a virtual bake-off with their team
- Practice self-care with a favorite hobby: yoga, gardening, knitting
- Do a 5K on the treadmill or stationary bike
- Create a safe and socially distanced stroll in their neighborhood
Take photos and videos and share your activity on favorite social media with the link to your walk fundraising page and the hashtag #NAMIJax #NotAlone. Together we can make a difference for people affected by mental illness.
The only limit of NAMIWalks Your Way is staying safe, healthy, and inspired. Share your ideas with us!
Remember: United, we insist on Mental Health for All.
