There is no walker registration fee for the Walk. All participants are encouraged to collect donations from family members, friends, co-workers and business associates in support of their participation in the Walk.
All the funds collected by walkers will be used to fund NAMI’s programs right here in Georgia and directly support our affiliates and chapters. These programs include support, education, research and advocacy involving schizophrenia, bipolar disorder (manic depression), major depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and severe anxiety disorders.
Companies, organizations and families are encouraged to organize teams of walkers made up of employees, organization members, relatives and friends to take part in the Walk.
All walkers raising $100 or more will receive a 2017 NAMIWalks T-shirt. Walkers are eligible for additional prizes with more money raised!
