7th Annual NAMIWalks Rochester 2019

May 4th, 2019

Village Gate Square - 10:00 AM

The gray skies and chilly weather didn’t keep over 700 dedicated mental health advocates from coming out to support the 2019 NAMIWalks Rochester!  Attendees were treated to complimentary chair massages courtesy of the Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage, Narcan training was available courtesy of Strong Recovery and there was many community partner tables sharing information about their services.  The kids area was popular among the youngest attendees, and the Rochester Psychiatric Center once again delighted the crowd with an interactive drum circle.  Currently, almost $95,000 has been raised through the walk efforts, and there is still time to donate!  The system stays open for donations until July 5th – log on now to support a team, walker or event at www.namiwalks.org/rochester.  Want to earn a Bluetooth speaker or Koozie brand cooler bag?  Keep raising those funds - $500 gets you a speaker, and $1,000 gets you the cooler bag.  Have questions or need more information?  Contact Kristina at kristina.mossgraber@namirochester.org or 585.423.1593.  Thank you for supporting NAMI Rochester!
