NAMI South Suburbs of Chicago

NAMIWalks Chicago

We are thrilled to announce that registration for the 12th annual NAMIWalks Chicago is now open! Celebrate Mental Health Awareness Month by committing to walk this year! 

Join us on September 16th, 2017 as we team up with NAMI Chicago and walk alongside hundreds of your community members to eliminate stigma, raise awareness for an improved mental health system for all, and raise funds for NAMI Chicago.  NAMI South Suburbs of Chicago gets a percentage of what's raised, so let's get out there and show our support!

If you walked last year or in years past, we invite you to come back. If you've never walked before, we encourage you to come out and join the movement this year! More than ever, we need to show up and stand up to stomp out stigma.

Chicago's NAMIWalk is FREE and open to everyone in the community. Fundraising is encouraged, but not required. The NAMIWalks website makes it easy to register and start a fundraising campaign -- just click the button below to get started! 

Team Captains

Interested in getting a group of family members, friends, or co-workers together to walk and raise funds as a team? Becoming a team captain is EASY, and we're here to help you along the way. You can take a look at the 2017 Team Captain Manual to learn more about what it takes. Once you register as a Team Captain, we'll follow up with more information!
