NAMI Louisville Step Forward for Mental Health Walk
UofL Health is a Speed Walk Gold Sponsor for the upcoming NAMI Louisville Step Forward for Mental Health Walk scheduled for Oct. 9 at Waterfront Park. This year, NAMI is also offering a preliminary week of virtual events and challenges on Facebook from Oct.1-8. Our team can enjoy both parts of this event and prizes will be given on walk day for the largest team, the team with the most donation dollars and the team who collected the most miles walked between Oct. 1-8. Please take the following steps to register and participate in this fun team building event! This is a great cause that helps to strengthen families and individuals affected by mental illness through education, support and advocacy.
Please use this link to register for the UofL Health team: https://namilouisville.org/walk-registration-sponsors/. Remember to look for the UofL Health name in the “Find Your Team” drop-down box on the registration page. You must click on our team name to be included on the UofL Health team and for our team captain to be notified that you have registered and joined our walk team.
It would be wonderful if all UofL Health team members not only participated in the NAMI Step Forward for Mental Health Walk but also participate in the fun games and challenges during the week on Facebook. To join this Facebook group, you need to click this link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/stepforwardwalk/. You will then be admitted into the group.
Many of the events within the virtual Facebook event week will be in the form of walking challenges where we will submit team miles and compete for badges or prizes. You can submit your miles directly to this linkhttps://namilouisville.org/step-forward-walk/submit/. Make sure you include our team name so that we can count your steps or miles in our team totals once the competitions begin.
Lastly, since your event registration is free, if you would like to make a donation to NAMI and support their efforts and mission, you can use this link (https://namilouisville.org/donate_now/) to submit your donations.
