Every year NAMI Greater Mississippi Valley, brings together more than 1,200 people to raise mental health awareness and funds for free mental health education and support programs for individuals living with a mental health condition and their families.
This year presents new challenges, so NAMIWalks is “going virtual.” On Saturday, October 10, NAMI will participate in NAMIWalks Your Way: A National Day of Hope in more than 40 cities across our nation.
Instead of walking a traditional 5K together, many participants still plan to walk, using their treadmill or going outside in the backyard or through a local park—all while taking precautions to stay safe. Others plan to hula-hoop, flip pancakes, practice yoga or do another activity they enjoy. They will share their activities on social media and follow NAMI Greater Mississippi Valley’s program online that includes mental health facts, participant activities and local entertainment.
To join NAMIWalks Your Way, visit namiwalks.org/greatermississippivalley. There is no registration fee, but fundraising is encouraged. Funds raised here, stay here, for NAMI ’s free local mental health programs.
Time: 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
