NAMI Rhode Island’s NAMIWalks 2019 Season is now in full swing!
SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, October 12, 2019 – The day begins at 9 am, by the Temple to Music at Roger Williams Park, Providence.
NAMI Walks is a powerful community event, raising awareness around mental illness, helping to fight stigma, and supporting your local NAMI.
How can you get involved with NAMI WALKS?
BUILD A TEAM: Are you a “take-charge” leader who wants to be a new Team Captain? Perhaps you have walked with us before and want to start your very own team? Building a NAMI Walks Team is very simple to do. Visit the NAMI RI Walk page online to create your team, and then just recruit your family, friends, or co-workers to participate. We will help, with tools to grow your team, tips on how to fundraise, prizes for raising money and events along the way to get your team energized. BUILD YOUR TEAM TODAY!
JOIN A TEAM: If you want to walk with us, but don’t have a team to walk with, don’t despair! We have plenty of friendly teams who would be happy to meet you and bring you into their group. All teams who have registered are listed on the website, and each team has a profile, so you can learn more about why they walk with us. VIEW THE TEAMS & JOIN!
VOLUNTEER: Do you want to support our walkers, but maybe not take on the walk itself? Are you a part of a school, company, or community group who likes to give back and wants to get involved? We are always happy to have volunteers at NAMI Walks! Volunteers can help us with the preparation for the day, water/snack stations, direction, cheering on the Walkers and many other tasks. Email the NAMI RI Executive Director to become a Walk volunteer at firstname.lastname@example.org
HELP US RAISE FUNDS: NAMI Walks is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Profits raised from the Walk support all the different types of programming that we do at NAMI RI. We offer a variety of FREE classes, support groups and educational presentations that are growing every year. If you believe in the mission of NAMI RI, helping us raise funds through NAMI Walks is a great way to get involved. You don’t have to Walk on October 12th – you can build a virtual team to help raise donations!
