NAMI Walk to be held in Kirkland, May 14, 2011

Every journey begins with that first step.

In 2011, thousands of concerned citizens in nearly 80 communities across the nation will walk together to raise money and awareness about our country's need for a world-class treatment and recovery system for people with mental illness.

Won't you join us?

The 7th annual NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Walk Washington will be held in Kirkland on May 14, 2011. It takes the generosity of many to make an event like this successful. We hope to see everyone in Kirkland for another terrific showing for mental health.

 

We expect 1,500 walkers to gather at Marina Park and show their support by walking to Carillon Point and back along Lake Washington Boulevard, beginning at 9:30 am.

 

NAMI depends on generous volunteers to raise funds and awareness at each of our Walk sites. The NAMI Washington Walk is the sole fund-raising activity for the statewide organization and all its affiliates advocating for the mentally ill — conducting education forums and classes, sponsoring peer and family support groups, battling stigma through awareness outreach, and seeking legislative action at the state, county and municipal levels.
