How can I partner with NAMI Finger Lakes for this event?
Get ready to choose your challenge for NAMI Finger Lakes! Between October 4th and 10th (Our National Day of Hope) You can achieve a 1 mile or 5K challenge in your neighborhood, on a treadmill, on wheels — or even in your imagination. You can skip rope, bake a cake, knit a scarf, sing a song, read a book to yourself or to your friends. You can join in a mental health conversation with others. Whatever goal you choose to share for your challenge, you’ll be helping NAMI Finger Lakes provide help, hope and support at a time when we all need it most.

What Do I Need To Do?
It’s easy! Sign up and choose your challenge. A longer activity can be completed with the 5k Virtual Challenge. A more manageable challenge can be completed with the Virtual Mile Challenge. The Choose Your Challenge is your best choice to decide on your own what goal you want to achieve and share and for how long. ALL EVENTS ARE VIRTUAL, NOT IN PERSON.
Set a goal and share your Challenge with friends and family! Take selfies during your event and share your progress. Share your story and encourage your caring supporters to talk about Mental Health and to reach out to NAMI Finger Lakes for free support and education.
This event will be open during the entire week of October 4th thru October 10th so you’ll have plenty of time to complete your Challenge. Registration is open now to help you share and build support to meet your fund raising goal.
We’re so grateful for your generous support of NAMI Finger Lakes. We look forward to seeing all of the gifts and talents you share in recognition of World Mental Health Day and in support of our goal!
Thank You! We can’t wait to see the goals you achieve while caring about Mental Health!
