NAMIWalks NYS: Strong Body, Strong Mind 2018
NAMI NYS invites You to join the movement...

Come Walk for Wellness on Saturday, September 29th at Jennings Landing, Albany NY. This inspirational community event will have a full day of live music, informational tabling, and family friendly activities.

                              ***************************************

NAMIWalks 2018- Every journey begins with that first step. This year, more than 50 thousand people in more than 85 communities across the nation will join NAMI and walk together to raise awareness of mental illness and raise funds for local, regional and state NAMI organizations.

Each NAMIWalks event brings together people of all ages and fitness levels for a fun 5K walk event. Those who are unable to walk with us are welcome to register and participate as a volunteer or “virtual walker” (or click on the first link above to donate to the cause through our team captain, Dhanu Sannesy).

Please pass along this information to your family and friends for their awareness. We welcome everyone's support!

Information for Donors
Excerpt from NAMI-NYS.org

Donating online is safe, fast and secure. NAMI uses VeriSign’s 128-bit SSL encryption, the strongest encryption available, which means your personal and credit card information is transmitted securely. To make a donation online, visit the link sent to you by a walker or team and click on Support Me to follow the prompts. You can also search for an individual or team via the walk home page.

Your donation will be listed along with your name and personal message unless you choose the Show my name to Walker only or Hide my name from everyone options available before processing your transaction. Please note: If you choose one of these options, your name will not appear on the walker’s webpage, but anything you write in the personal message space will appear.

Donors will receive an immediate on-screen and email confirmation of their donation. You will also receive an instant tax receipt if you provided us with an email address. Please add namiwalks@nami.org to your list of approved senders.

Want to send cash donations or checks? You can give them to the walker or Team Captain to turn in on Walk Day. Alternatively, you can send them to the address listed on the Walk home page, indicating which walker and team the donation is supporting.

Quick Facts:

- The option of donating anonymously prevents your name from showing up on the webpage and online searches. To further remain anonymous online, do not write your name or other identifying information in the message area as this appears on the walker's webpage. Please note: whenever a donation is made in support of a walker, they are notified of the donation and given the name of the donor so that they may thank that person. If you wish to remain anonymous – even to the walker you are supporting – then select Hide my name from everyone. If you don’t want your donation to show on the walker’s page, select Show my donation amount to Walker only.
