NAMIWalks Nebraska Walk Your Way

NAMIWalks is going to be a little different this year. We’re not canceling it – we wouldn’t think of it when our collective mental health needs are at their greatest. NAMI’s programs and advocacy are needed more than ever, and with your help, we are pleased to present a walk for our times, NAMIWalks Your Way Nebraska: A Virtual Event NAMIWALKS.org/Nebraska on May 30.

What is NAMIWalks Your Way?

On May 30, NAMIWalks will be a virtual experience and joined by NAMIWalks across the country. NAMIWalks Your Way means what it sounds like: participants get to make NAMIWalks their own. You can walk a 5K—through your neighborhood, around your backyard, on your treadmill. Or you can do something else meaningful and fun to celebrate our virtual walk day.

What participants are doing on May 30:

Walking 3,500 steps for a 5K their way
Planning a craft day with their kids
Holding a virtual bake-off with their team
Practicing self-care with a favorite hobby: yoga, gardening, knitting
Doing a 5K on the treadmill or stationary bike
Host a virtual paint and sip party

Take photos and videos and share your activity on a favorite social media with the link to your walk fundraising page and the hashtag #NotAlone and #MentalHealthForAll. Together we can make May 30 a day to remember - Mental Health for All: A National Day of Hope.

We’d love to learn more about what you are doing!
