Join us for the 6th annual Walk to raise awareness that mental health is fundamental to everyone's overall health and to challenge the stigma that has surrounded mental health for decades that oftentimes prevents people from seeking the help they need. Walk to celebrate the life of people you know who face mental health challenges or to remember loves ones lost to this devastating illness.

It is a family day in the park with fun events for the whole family - like moon bounce, face painting, free food, door prizes and a silent auction that you won't believe - works by local artists, gifts baskets from local merchants and weekend get-aways.

Come listen to Live Music by the 2nd Chanz Band  

Start collecting pledges now. Everyone who registers will receive a special shirt to commemorate this event. Commemorative race t-shirts are designed locally by people with mental health conditions in recovery that are available only to Walk participants and at MHAF. If walking is not your thing, come out and enjoy the great items in the silent auction. Regardless of how you do it, please help us in the fight to end mental health stigma.

And there are prizes for the individual and team that raises the most money. So start asking now!
