Join us for A Unique Mental Health Awareness Campaign!


For the second year in a row, NAMIWalks will be a little different — while making a lot of difference. It’s going to be “your way,” just like 2020’s phenomenally successful events — as we prove our resilience by stretching our limits anew and making the event our own.

 

In 2021, we are celebrating 19 years of NAMIWalks, the nation's largest and most successful mental health awareness and fundraising campaign. NAMI Maryland is proud to have been involved in NAMIWalks since the very beginning, and we hope you will join us this year for this incredible virtual campaign!

 

There are many ways you can make a difference via NAMIWalks: as a sponsor, team captain, team member, or an individual participant.  


However you participate in NAMIWalks, you will be joining NAMI's national movement!


Sponsorships Are Available

 

Your sponsorship will demonstrate to your employees and our community of more than 53,000 individuals, families, and organizations connected to us that you are committed to improving the lives of individuals with mental health conditions and their families.  In appreciation of your sponsorship, you will receive a video ad during our virtual programming, social media shout-outs throughout the campaign, a virtual sponsorship booth, inclusion on our official t-shirt, and so much more.  Click here for our sponsorship brochure!
