Find Help, Find Hope!

NAMIWalks Greater Philadelphia 2020

With the safety and health of our community as our top priority, NAMIWalks Greater Philadelphia is going to be a little different this year. With resources for our mental health education, support and advocacy programs needed now more than ever, we are pleased to announce a walk for our times, NAMIWalks Greater Philadelphia Your Way.

It’s a virtual walk with a greater reach: the reach of your imagination, the depth of your compassion. We will be joining with other NAMIWalks across the country on May 30th with a united effort to make a difference in the lives of those impacted by mental illness.

NAMIWalks Greater Philadelphia Your Way means what it sounds like: with our lives currently constrained, you get to make NAMIWalks Greater Philadelphia your own. You can walk around your block, you can walk around your garden, you can walk with a wok in your kitchen. If you work from home, now you can walk at home. You can “Hula hoop for hope.” You can self-fundraise while you self-quarantine – or do it as part of a team.

We will be sharing more information on how you can take part in our virtual event on May 30th and on sponsorship recognition in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime, focus on your self-care and staying healthy. Together we’ll continue to work toward our goal of Mental Health for All.


NAMIWalks is an active display of support for people impacted by mental health conditions in hopes of changing how society view people with a mental illness. The walk brings together members of the community to combat stigma, promote awareness and celebrate hope and recovery.

Proceeds from NAMIWalks Greater Philadelphia helps to fund NAMI Montgomery County PA education and support programming that addresses mental health needs of our community members, replaces stigma with understanding and helps thousands of families and individuals each year.
