This year’s 13th annual walk and time-chipped and certified 5K run are taking place on Saturday, May 11, 2019 and kick off at South Street Seaport.

Every year over 5,000 people come together to promote awareness, celebrate recovery, and fight discrimination, to help thousands of New Yorkers affected by mental illness each year – both families and friends, and individuals. The funds raised allow NAMI-NYC to provide education, support, and outreach programs throughout New York City.

Alex Boniello Patti Murin NAMIWalksNYC CoHosts

We are so pleased to announce that Alex Boniello, star of Dear Evan Hansen, and Patti Murin, star of Frozen on Broadway, will serve as co-hosts of NAMIWalks NYC 2019!⁣⁣
“We are honored to have Broadway’s leading stars shine a bright light on our advocacy efforts during Mental Health Month. Patti’s deeply personal essay about her own anxiety struggles was not only brave, but she normalizes her lived experience, and connects her incredible voice to so many struggling to cope and seek out the support they need. And the transformative power of Dear Evan Hansen has propelled the mental health conversation into the national spotlight and lessened the negative stigma associated with the words “mental illness” through its emotional story and healing music and lyrics.” ⁣⁣
