NAMIWalks Your Way Mercer County
May 22 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
NAMI Mercer is holding a virtual walk – NAMIWalks Your Way – to support its mission of destigmatizing mental illness and providing support, education, and advocacy for families and individuals affected by mental illness in New Jersey’s Capital region. NAMI Mercer is a Hamilton, NJ-based robust local affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The NAMIWalks Your Way event will take place on May 22, 2021 from 10 am to 3 pm. This year’s walk theme is Mental Health for All – and Always, which is a cause being championed by the national NAMI organization as well as hundreds of affiliate chapters across the country in both the spring and fall during walk events like this one.
Held annually, NAMIWalks Mercer County is the county’s largest mental health awareness-raising event, as well as NAMI Mercer’s largest fundraising activity. Participants this year are encouraged to get creative for NAMIWalks Your Way, whether it’s walking with loved ones, going on a solo run and posting about it on social media, hosting a live stream of a yoga flow, doing a virtual bake-a-thon, or coming up with another imaginative way to raise awareness for mental health.
