NAMIwalks 2016 Banner

Over 1,200 people flocked to Edgewater Park on the sunny summer morning of Saturday, August 27 for the 14th Annual NAMI Walk. Together, we walked a 5K along the park’s trail and celebrated mental illness treatment and recovery. Thank you to all of the sponsors, volunteers, teams and participants who made this our most successful NAMI Walk ever! 

We are getting close to reaching our goal of raising $132,000. If you would like to donate on behalf of a walker or check out our sponsors, go to  Online donations accepted through October 20.  All proceeds of the NAMI Walk benefit NAMI’s mission of recovery focused support, education and advocacy for individuals and families affected by mental illness
