NAMIWalks 2018

There’s nothing like a long walk along the Monongahela River to take the edge off of a chilly October morning! On Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018, NAMI Keystone Pennsylvania hosted its 12th annual NAMIWalks at the Waterfront in Homestead. Thousands of people bundled up for the 5k walk that raises awareness for mental health and spreads the word that recovery is possible. This year’s event featured face painting, balloon and caricature artists, and a selfie station where people posted photos to social media using #NAMIWalks. Honorary Chair, WTAE-TV News Anchor Michelle Wright, emceed the event and for the fifth year in a row, Deb Wasilchak from Community Care Behavioral Health, served as the NAMIWalks Chairperson.

Even though the Walk is over, the fundraising for NAMIWalks will continue through the end of November.  So, keep an eye out for emails and social media posts announcing new contests. You can also continue to make donations on NAMI Keystone Pennsylvania’s Walk Page.
