NAMIWalks 2019 recap:

On Saturday, October 12, 2019, 855 people, including people living in recovery from mental illness, their families and friends, professionals, youth and seniors, faith groups and community groups gathered at Honolulu Hale, Civic Grounds for Hawaii’s largest mental health awareness walk. We raised $77,013 to fund mental health education and activism.

The event, which benefits the National Alliance on Mental Illness Hawaii (NAMI Hawaii), raises vital funding for no-cost education and support services for more than 284,600 people in Hawaii impacted by mental illness each year.

We had both a 1K (~15min) and 5K (1 hour) route for our walkers this year.
