NAMIWalks mental health fundraiser goes virtual


Southwest Florida’s NAMIWalks is going to be a little different this year.

Rather than cancel the mental health fundraising event, the National Alliance on Mental Illness will present a “walk for our times,” NAMIWalks Your Way Southwest Florida: A Virtual Event on Oct. 10.

NAMIWalks will be a virtual experience and joined by NAMIWalks across the country. Participants can walk a 5K through their neighborhoods, around your backyards, on their treadmills, or they can do something else meaningful and fun to celebrate the virtual walk day.

NAMI encourages participants to take photos and videos and share their activities on a favorite social media with the link to your walk fundraising page and the hashtag #NotAlone and #MentalHealthForAll, to make a difference for people affected by mental illness.
