This October, thousands of Virginians will come together to celebrate NAMIWalks! NAMIWalks brings together individuals and supporters to celebrate mental illness recovery, honor those have lost their lives to mental illness, help raise funds, combat stigma and promote awareness.

There is no registration fee, however, all participants are encouraged to collect donations. NAMIWalks is the largest fundraiser of the year, and proceeds go to support NAMI CVA’s free mental health support programs. We need your help in making this year the best walk yet!

The best way to get started? REGISTER for the walk by clicking this link and going through the short, simple steps. Be sure to check that you are participating in support of the NAMI Central Virginia affiliate. There is also a NAMI Central Virginia Walk team that any one of our friends are welcome to join!

Once you register, you will receive further updates on a slew of great fundraising tips, incentive prizes, and opportunities to share your story with the world thru NAMIWalks!

Fun fact: In 2018, 88 NAMIWalks events raised over $11.5 million to support local programs and initiatives that improve the lives of persons affected by mental illness. Help us beat our goal for 2019!
