NAMIWalks' Coaching Video Series

Many of our Team Captains and Walkers have attended a Walk Information Meeting and/or a Team Captain Kick-Off Luncheon this Fall Walk season. At those meetings Walk Managers provided event information, as well as team building and fundraising tips. 

To enhance the information that was presented at these events, as well as the coaching emails that Walk Managers have been sending to event participants, the National Walk Team created a series of coaching videos. We hope these videos will compliment the information you have received and continue to receive. We want our Team Captains and Walkers to be successful, so we try to provide all the tools possible to help you along your NAMIWalk journey. Please take a few minutes to watch our videos and let us know what you think! Click here to view the videos.
