How can you partner with NAMI Finger Lakes for this event?

Get ready to choose your challenge for NAMI Finger Lakes! Between October 4th and 10th (Our National Day of Hope) You can walk/run 1 mile or 5K in your neighborhood, on a treadmill, on wheels — or even in your imagination. You can skip rope, bake a cake, knit a scarf, sing a song, read a book to yourself or to your friends. You can join in a mental health conversation with others. Whatever talent or skill or goal you choose for your challenge, you’ll be sharing help, hope, and support at a time when we all need it most.

Thank you for your hopeful spirit and support for mental health for all!
