Step Forward Walk

NAMI exists to strengthen families and individuals affected by mental illness through education, support and advocacy. NAMI Louisville is the local affiliate of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness and is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI Louisville is membership-based and is headed by an executive director and supported by a host of dedicated volunteers.
The NAMI Louisville Step Forward for Mental Health Walk, scheduled for June 8, 2019, returns again to educate and raise awareness about mental health issues in our community. This annual Walk serves as the organization’s only fundraising event and brings together hundreds of individuals and families affected by mental illness, as well as members of the business and civic community, who along with NAMI Louisville are working to make positive changes in mental health. Walkers gather for a festive warm-up before trekking together along the Ohio riverfront to support community wellness. The casual two mile walk is a heartwarming experience that culminates with a lively celebration at the finish line.
