October 15th, 2016 – Save the Date!

NAMIWalks Virginia 2016 is right around the corner!

Come join the thousands of individuals at Innsbrook in Glen Allen on October 15th for a day dedicated to inspiring hope, improving lives, and fighting the stigma surrounding mental illness. There will be a whole hosting of fun activities and vendors with valuable mental health-related information, followed by the Walk itself – a 5k that winds throughout the lovely Innsbrook complex.

The proceeds from NAMIWalks will assist NAMI Central Virginia and other affiliates in providing free mental health support and education to thousands of people in the community. These programs are vital to so many individuals and families that have struggled with the challenges mental illness can present. Help us stomp out stigma, strengthen NAMI’s presence, and improve lives!
