Saturday was an amazing day!

Thousands of people came together to share support for families and individuals living with mental illness. And the weather was amazing. It was the perfect day and our walkers made that possible with their enthusiasm and energy.

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.” ⁣⁣

Need help fundraising? It’s all about getting personal!

1. When you ask for a donation, tell why mental health matters, and why NAMI-NYC is important to you. Here’s a sample email you can use!
2. Send a text to everyone in your contact list.
