Brief Description of Event: 
Mental Illness does not discriminate on who it affects. With 1 in 5 people being affected by mental illness, you are likely to know someone who may be struggling in silence. It is for this reason that we are excited to bring NAMIWalks—the nation’s largest mental health 5K walk event—to Virginia! This year NAMI Virginia will present its 12th NAMIWalks event on Saturday, October 5th. NAMIWalks Virginia will strive to accomplish the following goals: • Raise funds for NAMI’s mission of recovery focused support, education and advocacy for individuals and families affected by mental illness. • Increase awareness of mental illness by reaching hundreds of thousands of people through team building, communications, promotions and media activity. • Eliminate stigma by giving people a positive reason to talk openly about mental illness through the NAMIWalks platform.
