virtual walk


NAMIWalks is the largest mental health education and fundraising effort in America. NAMIWalks brings together thousands of individuals and supporters to celebrate mental illness recovery, honor those who have lost their lives to mental illness and help raise funds, combat stigma and promote awareness.




Saturday, May 30, 2020


Time:11:00 am



Virtual!  Participate in NAMIWalks Maryland through social media and our official livefeeds!


Why Online?

The NAMIWalks community knows how to think on our feet.  Instead of canceling the Walk, which would reduce funding when our affiliates, programs, and advocacy are needed more than ever, we are pleased to announce a Walk for our times: Virtual NAMIWalks Maryland, 5K Your Way on Saturday, May 30th, 2020.


Virtual NAMIWalks Maryland means just what it sounds like: virtually anything goes.  you can walk around your block, your garden, or even walk with a wok in your kitchen.  You can self-fundraise while you self-quarantine.  Best of all, you can 5k your way!


Through NAMIWalks' public, active display of support for people affected by mental illness and their loved ones, we are changing how Marylanders and Americans view mental illness. NAMIWalks affords us the opportunity to share the message that help and hope are available for those in need.


NAMIWalks proceeds support mental health programs offered at NO COST throughout Maryland and help us to offer essential, practical education and support at no cost to our local communities. 




To register as an a team captain or as an individual walker, please go to  It's free!  



In addition to the virtual event on May 30th, NAMI Maryland is still planning to hold a major, central celebration with participants, partners, and sponsors in the Summer/early Fall once the State declares it is safe to do so.  We will continue to provide you updates on the status of the NAMIWalks Maryland 5k Your Way and our celebration event as details unfold.
