Let's Walk for Mental Health!
As NAMI Connecticut begins its 14th annual Walk, we invite you to take part in OUR largest and most successful mental health awareness and fundraising event for our organization.
When you walk with NAMI Connecticut, you join the movement to raise awareness of mental illness and raise funds for our mission to help individuals and families right here in OUR state.
Register TODAY and join us as we improve lives and our communities Stepping Towards Hope & Wellness!
Walk Day is an opportunity to team up with friends, loved ones, co-workers and supporters coming together and will feature:
- A Live Band!
- Special guest appearances
- Event T-shirt for individuals who raise $100 or more
- Best designed Team t-shirt contest
- Best dressed NAMI Connecticut dog contest
- Snack/Water Tent
- Face painting
- Sponsor Booths with giveaways
- Team photos and more!
We all participate in the Walk for different reasons; some may walk to celebrate their own recovery. Some walkers are supporting family members or friends who live with a mental illness. Some may walk in memory of a loved one. The Walk is an important way to help fight the stigma of mental illness, and demonstrate our support to the community.
With every step we take and every dollar we look forward to a brighter future for families and those living with mental health challenges in our state.
JOIN US in Stepping Towards Hope & Wellness, Together!
Not able to join at Bushnell Park on Walk Day? You can still join in the fun by being a Virtual Walker. You can still register as an Individual Walker or create a Virtual Team of Walkers. You can start by sending emails or letters to your friends and family near and far asking them to Join, Donate or Fundraise for the Team ONLINE without leaving their home or state! We will send you and anyone on your Team an official event t-shirt as a thank you for your support once each person has raised $100!
