Become a NAMIWalks Hero. Join our team for the 2019 NAMIWalks event! We are walking to raise awareness of mental illness and raise funds for the important work of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
Please JOIN OUR TEAM and walk with us, or support our team by making a donation to a team member listed on our ROSTER. Donations on this page are fast, secure and easy. Those who are unable to walk with us are welcome to register and participate as a volunteer or “virtual walker.”
All funds raised directly support the mission of NAMI to provide support, education, and advocacy to individuals and families right here in our community.
Your support means a lot to our team and the 43.8 million Americans who experience mental illness in a given year.
We invite you to join us in our efforts to support the MS Society of Canada. Multiple sclerosis can strike anyone at any moment, and Canadians have one of the highest rates of MS in the world. On average, 11 Canadians are diagnosed with this unpredictable disease every day. We don’t know what causes MS, and we don’t have a cure. Yet.
We’re participating in MS Walk because we want to support our friends, family members, neighbours and co-workers who are affected by MS.
Join our team as we challenge MS and help empower more people affected by the disease to live their best lives. This is a day for the community of Toronto to come together and support a great cause with one goal in mind, to end MS! Donations will support our friends and families in Toronto living with Multiple Sclerosis and by continuing to support the best MS research in the world taking place right here in Canada.
If you are unable to join us at MS Walk, donate to our team’s fundraising today. Your donation will help continue to fund leading-edge research and support programs that improve the quality of life for people affected by MS.
Team Unbreakable uses running to engage youth, educating them about better mental health and providing them with tools to better cope with life’s challenges because mental illness is among the most poorly funded and resourced areas of health care.
Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among youth. Suicide is preventable. 90% stem from treatable mental illness.
Each suicide has a huge impact on family, friends and the community. Permanently.
Join Pillar To Post staff to run in either a 5K, 10K, half-marathon, or marathon to raise much needed funds for youth mental health. Or make a donation to our team!
For the Northeast Florida team at Paul Davis Restoration, Social Purpose is about giving back to the community by supporting causes and events that are near and dear to them and also about pursuing health and wellness activities together.
Earlier this year, the team participated in the Moo-ve It 5K to benefit the Justice Coalition of Northeast Florida. Leading up to the event, Eric Taylor, director of franchise launch, and a fitness enthusiast, offered to help train the team so they’d be race-ready on the big day.
This became the genesis of the Paul Davis Running Club, which meets regularly to encourage colleagues to engage in healthy activities and to train for charitable running events.
Most recently, team members participated in the Never Quit 1M/5K/10K on beautiful Jacksonville Beach. Never Quit promotes awareness and support for military and armed forces personnel and serves to encourage all to “Never Quit.” On race day runners write for whom they will “Never Quit” on their bibs and run in their honor. Often this includes friends and loved ones who have fought serious illnesses or faced personal hardships.
For Eric, this race was especially poignant having lost his mother following a long battle with Lyme disease last year. Eric was joined by Marketing Coordinator Ginella Diaz who committed to “Never Quit” for her mother who is undergoing treatment for cancer.
“It was very moving when the presenter asked the public if they had someone in their lives who has had a stroke or cancer. Lots of people raised their hands. Then he encouraged us to think of them and go run for them! I still get moved by these words when I think about it,” said Ginella.
A highlight for many was when they got to hear from a 99 1/2 year old veteran who addressed the crowd and shared some of his life experiences. He gave an inspirational speech on how and why he never quits.
One team member took a photo with a powerful Theodore Roosevelt quote displayed at the event: “Never throughout history has a man who lived a life of ease left a name worth remembering.”
