New Hampshire’s largest mental health awareness and suicide prevention event goes virtual Oct. 10
Registration for NAMIWalks NH Your Way- A Day of Hope is free online at www.NAMINH.org
Every year, NAMIWalks NH brings thousands of Granite Staters together for New Hampshire’s largest mental health awareness and suicide prevention event. However, this year, with safety in mind the 18th annual NAMIWalks NH has gone virtual.
More than 1,000 participants across nearly 140 teams have already registered to take part in NAMIWalks NH Your Way – A Day of Hope on Saturday, Oct. 10. The virtual event allows registrants to honor mental health awareness and suicide prevention with their own style. From kayaking and hiking to horseback riding and skateboarding, from knitting and drawing to playing and painting, folks are ready to take to social media on Oct. 10, sharing their activities while promoting mental health and suicide prevention.
Registration for NAMIWalks NH Your Way is free online at www.NAMINH.org. All participants registered by Oct. 9 are entered to win an iPad, and those raising $100 or more will receive an event T-shirt. Thanks to the generosity of steadfast sponsors and individual donors, more than $125,000 has been raised for NAMIWalks NH Your Way 2020 – those funds stay in New Hampshire to provide support, education, and advocacy for Granite Staters affected by mental illness and suicide.
NAMIWalks NH Your Way – A Day of Hope kicks off on NAMI New Hampshire’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/naminh1) Saturday, Oct. 10, at 10 a.m. Tune in throughout the day to see how participants put their unique spin on raising awareness for mental health and suicide prevention during this capstone event of Mental Illness Awareness Week.
