Walking provides great exercise for both the body and the mind, so you don’t just want to walk at the NAMIWalk, you should continue taking walks throughout the year! You can take easy-breezy walks or more brisk-rigorous walks. If you’re feeling particularly ambitious, you can set walking goals. On a weekly or monthly basis you can increase the number of miles you walk and/or the number of walks you take during the week. You might also want to keep your walks fresh and FUN by changing up your walk locations and paths. And for the dog owners, don't forget to take your furry friend with you!

We want to make sure our NAMIWalk participants remain healthy and happy all year long!
