NAMI BIG ISLAND'S NAMI WALKS YOUR WAY: A NATIONAL DAY OF HOPE
Each year, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) brings together community, family members and friends to raise mental health awareness and funds through NAMIWalks events across the country. This year the NAMIWalks will be virtual. Many participants still plan to walk, using their treadmill or going outside the backyard to a local park, all while taking COVID safety precautions. Others plan to hula hoop, flip pancakes, practice yoga, or do another activity they enjoy, and share their activities on social media and follow NAMI Hawai'i's program, which includes mental health facts and participant activities. There is no registration fee, but fundraising is encouraged; funds raised support NAMI Big Islnad's free local mental health family education programs, family support groups and other services. For more information about the virtual walk, contact Walk Manager Susan McGovern. Contact Kathy Hammes at (808) 959-2426 for info on NAMI programs and services.
