THE 12th Annual NAMIWalks Greater Philadelphia Mental Health Awareness 5k Walk took place on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at Montgomery County Community College. The rain didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of our walkers as a record number of people joined together to raise awareness, celebrate hope and stomp the stigma of mental illness!
