NAMIWalks Your Way: A United Day of Hope

Last year we rolled out our very first entirely virtual event – NAMIWalks Your Way New Jersey more than 800 participants took part their way – participating in virtual program put together by our talented volunteers across the state and in person choosing activities like walking on a treadmill or in their neighborhood, practicing yoga, or riding their bike.

Let’s keep the momentum going this Fall — as we unite across the country to insist on hope and celebrate Mental Health for All.    

On October 9, 2021, NAMIWalks NJ will be a virtual experience, united with NAMIWalks across the country and  NAMIWalks NJ team is here to encourage participants to get creative to work towards achieving our fundraising goal and ensuring our local programs continue to benefit our community. We will answer your questions on how you can participate, reach out to sponsors and lead your team by registering as Team captain.

Here is a great opportunity for the past TC and walkers to share your walk stories/experiences with new attendees – on how they can participate, reach out to their family and friends, raise awareness about mental illness, raise funds for your affiliate and secure sponsorships.

 

Keep using the hashtag #NotAlone and #namiwalksnj on social media to show us what you are doing to support our broad mental health community, honor yourself and family/friends or remember your loved ones.
