Join MPA for the NAMI-MN Walk - Satruday, September 26, 2020

Why Walk?

  • The walk is an opportunity to speak out about the discrimination against mental illness. Mental illness touches all of our lives.
  • NAMI-MN is an incredible partner with MPA in many legislative and advocacy endeavors. Let’s support a vital community resource for individuals and families grappling with mental illness.

How Can We Walk Given Social Distancing Restrictions?

This year we have to be a little creative. There are two ways you can participate in the walk:

  • Walk Your Way
    • Go to the NAMI-MN MPA team website at and sign up and make a donation. Any amount is helpful. You can also solicit donations for NAMI-MN from family and friends.
    • Send an email to [email protected] to let us know you plan to participate.
    • An awesome MPA t-shirt and a NAMI-MN yard sign will be delivered to you.
    • Take a picture of yourself with the t-shirt and sign and send it to [email protected]. We will make a montage to go on the NAMI-MN site and MPA’s homepage.
    • Take a walk with friends or family on September 26, 2020.
  • Meet-Greet-Walk With Colleagues
    • We are challenging MPA Divisions to bring their members together for a socially distant gathering. (Meet at a park or on a walking trail, and then go for a walk).
    • Complete the steps 1-4 above.
    • Check in on you favorite listserv to see if/when/where to gather on September 26, 2020.
    • Meet colleagues in a socially distant way and go for a walk. Please wear a mask and your t-shirt. You can bring your sign to carry or put it in your yard. Take pictures to share on the MPA homepage.
    • The division with the most participants wins a special thank you on the webpage.
