We are joining NAMI affilliates across the nation for NAMIWalks Your Way NYC: A Virtual Event on May 30. Our collective mental health needs are at their greatest and NAMI-NYC’s support services are needed more than ever - calls to the NAMI-NYC Helpline are up 60%, and we quickly pivoted to offer our support services remotely adding additional resources to address COVID-19 related mental health issues.
YOU can make a difference in the lives of families and individuals living with mental illness, and together we will raise the funds needed to continue and expand our free-of-charge support and education programming for all in need. Together we can ensure #MentalHealthForAll.
How you can NAMIWalks Your Way:
NAMIWalks Your Way means what it sounds like: participants get to make NAMIWalks their own. You can walk a 5K—through your neighborhood, around your backyard, on your treadmill. Or you can do something else meaningful and fun to celebrate our virtual walk day.
How you can Join Us on May 30:
We'll be online with you throughout the day providing you with fun and inspirational activities - just like we would have if we were together at The Seaport, but with a twist! We have activities to join in throughout the day and will be sharing YOUR social shares on your feed too! Tune in all day, or pick the feeds that interest you - this is YOUR DAY, YOUR WAY!
Join us on and watch our livestream at www.namiwalksnyc.org!
Don't forget! Share to social media so we can share how your are Walking YOUR Way on our live feeds! Take photos and videos and share your activity on a favorite social media with the link to your walk fundraising page and the hashtag #NAMIWalksNYC, #MentalHealthMatters, #MentalHealthForAll, #NAMIWalksYourWay. Together we can make May 30 a day to remember - Mental Health for All: A National Day of Hope.
The only limit of NAMIWalks Your Way is the reach of your imagination and the breadth of your compassion. Share your ideas with us!
