Here is How You Can Raise $1,000 and Make a Difference in Someone’s Life

  • NAMIWalks strives to be inclusive, so we has no registration fee or fundraising minimum.
  • Our model is based on a lot of people raising a small piece of the pie, and not on a few people raising large sums of money.
  • The size of Walk Teams vary from 1 person to 100 people.  The average Team is 10 people.  If each of person commits to raising $100, a Team consisting of 10 people can raise $1,000!

Now is the time to get started:

  1. Register online as a Team Captain:
  2. Recruit 9 Team Members.
  3. Everyone set a goal to raise $100.
  4. Reach out to your family members, friends, co-workers, asking them to make a donation to your Walk Team.
  5. Get fundraising tips, Walk posters and Walk brochures by contacting Lisa Dellafiora at 216-875-0266 or
  6. Ask your dentist, veterinarian, hair dresser/barber, insurance agent, financial planner, attorney, real estate agent to donate to your Team.
  7. Join us for NAMIWalks 2015 on Saturday, August 29.

We look forward to seeing you at NAMIWalks 2015!
