NAMI Greater Wheeling Walk for Awareness
Annual Walk for Mental Health Awareness with NAMI Greater Wheeling
NAMI Greater Wheeling’s 5th Annual Walk for Awareness is VIRTUAL this year. Plan on walking individually or with family/friends you regulary hang out with on
Saturday, October 17th, 2020 between 10am-12noon
NAMI Greater Wheeling, WV is an affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the largest grassroots mental health organization in the country. On October 17, 2020, NAMI Greater Wheeling will hold a VIRTUAL WALK to raise awareness for mental illness.
1 in 5 people live with a mental illness. Everyone knows someone with a mental illness. But only 40% of people with a mental illness get treatment. The reason people don’t get help? Stigma. We want to help change this statistic in our community. Your sponsorship will help NAMI Greater Wheeling continue to offer support groups, signature education programs, and offer special programs to those who attend the NAMI Drop-In Center.
Remember: You don’t have to walk to donate and support NAMI.
REGISTRATION – FREE / Adult Face Mask – $10 / Regisration opens September 1st
