Take steps at 2023 NAMIWalks North Texas to raise awareness for mental health and stop the stigma. The walk also celebrates mental health recovery, honors those who have lost their lives to mental health conditions and raises funds for the nonprofit. This year's goal is to raise more than $175,000. The walk takes place on Saturday, May 6 at 9:00 a.m. at Riders Field in Frisco.
The power of our mission is being felt as never before. The achievement of "Mental Health for All" has never felt this critical yet closer to being realized. It's not how far we walk on May 6, but how far we've come to make our milestones count. With your support and high spirits, we intend to make an unprecedented impact on mental health in our community. NAMIWalks 2023 represents a powerful chance to leave a significant mark on the local mental health landscape. Whether you're a previous participant or a new voice waiting to be heard, we're pretty sure you'll find the festivities inspired and inspiring.
There is no registration fee for the walk. All participants are encouraged to collect donations from family members, friends, co-workers, business associates and other mental health advocates. All walkers raising $100 or more receive a NAMIWalks North Texas event t-shirt. To participate, donate or support a team, visit naminorthtexas.org/namiwalksntx.
