The Boise affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness hosts this fun walk for families, friends, and members of the community to raise awareness for mental health services. This pet-friendly walk takes place on the greenbelt and ends with a BBQ lunch for walkers. NAMI Boise provides support, information and critical services to persons living with mental illness& families. Would you be interested in creating a walking team of members representing your organization, coworkers, friends or family members? Every step counts and with your help, together we can bring awareness and additional services to meet the needs of our community. The winning team will receive a trophy bearing the name of their team. It is a great way to build relationships and do something really great for our community.
Every journey begins with that first step! As NAMIWalks celebrates our 7th Anniversary in 2013, we are proud to be part of the largest and most successful mental health awareness and fundraising event in America!
Through NAMIWalks’ public, active display of support for people affected by mental illness, we are changing how Americans view persons with a mental illness. Approximately 25% of our population suffers from Mental Illness. NAMI Boise provides help and support where none exists and this event helps us by ensuring that help and hope continue to be available for those in need. Please join us as we improve lives and our communities one step at a time.
