Find Help, Find Hope!

NAMIWalks Your Way Greater Philadelphia 2020

Streamed on our Walk Page & Facebook

Funds raised stay right here in your community and directly benefit those impacted by mental illness through no-cost education, support and advocacy programs offered by NAMI Montgomery County PA. In these challenging times, your support has never been so needed and appreciated! THANK YOU!

We may be divided physically but virtually we can be joined with thousands across the country as we walk to raise awareness, celebrate hope and recovery, and stomp the stigma of mental illness!

Community Event

In addition to the virtual event on May 30th, we are still planning to hold a community event with participants, partners, and sponsors in the early fall once PA declares it is safe to do so. We will continue to provide you updates on the status of our community event as details unfold.




NAMIWALKS FACEBOOK FUNDRAISERS

These fundraisers are an easy and effective way to raise money for your walk team. Facebook covers all the costs of credit card processing, so 100% of the amount donated goes to NAMI Montgomery County.

To create a Facebook fundraiser and link funds to your walk fundraising page, you must already be registered and have created a team at namiwalks.org/greaterphiladelphia. Do not set up your walk fundraiser directly through Facebook, those are different types of fundraisers & will not link funds raised to you walk page. Click Here for step by step instructions.
