Our Honorary Chair Michelle Wright of WTAE-TV will emcee the Walk. Recording artist Stevee Wellons will sing the National Anthem.

Team Photos

Gather your team and report to the sidewalk in front of Victoria’s Secret to have your team photo taken. Look for the PHOTO sign! You can also ask the DJ onstage to announce your team.


Keep fundraising on the NAMIWalks website. Cash and checks can be turned in at Registration on Walk Day. Anyone raising $100 will receive a 2015 NAMIWalks T-shirt.


UNO Pizzeria at the Waterfront is offering 20% of proceeds on Sunday to NAMI. However, you must use a coupon. Print this coupon or visit the NAMI Info tent at the Walk.

Green Awareness Bracelets

Wear your green awareness bracelets to the Walk! If you don’t have one, visit the Value Behavioral Health vendor booth for a free bracelet, while supplies last.
