One in three adults in the U.S. are experiencing symptoms of anxiety or depression, and one in five are experiencing mental illness. Together with NAMIWalks participants across the country, Northern California, and San Joaquin County, support National Alliance on Mental Illness and join us virtually in the 2021 NAMIWalks Northern California.

Why do we fundraise?
• Provide free, quality educational classes & support groups to both individuals with mental health conditions and their families.
• Provide free educational programs to care providers.
• Advocacy to improve the lives of individuals with mental illness.
• Support research/understanding of brain disorders.
• Sponsor community speakers on mental health-related topics.
What is a virtual walk?
You have the creativity to choose your own activity such as walking your dog, exercising, meditating, gardening, golfing, and cooking and to share online with friends and families. How do we register or donate? Go to the website to register as a team captain or team member. To donate, first enter the individual’s or team name on the fundraiser search on top right-hand corner of the page. For mail-in donations, write the name of the person you are sponsoring on the check’s memo, mail to NAMI Sacramento, P.O. Box 277147, Sacramento, CA 95827, and request a receipt.

How do we start or join a team?
To register as a team captain, choose your team’s name and your individual and team fundraising goals. Then customize your fundraising page and invite your friends and families to join. To register as a team member, choose a team and ask others to support you. Those registered individuals who raise or self-donate $100 will receive a T-shirt.
