We Need YOUR Help to do more for Mental Health in Massachusetts !

NAMIWalks Massachusetts brings together thousands of people each year to combat discrimination, raise funds, and educate the public about mental health. NAMIWalks is our biggest and most important fundraiser of the year, and supports our educational programs, support groups, helpline, and grassroots advocacy efforts.


We’re recruiting volunteers for our NAMIWalks Massachusetts 2020 Committees. As a volunteer committee member, you’ll be working with our Walk team to support all areas of the event. Each walk committee will focus on one of the following areas:

  • Sponsorship
  • WALK Team Retention
  • New Team Outreach
  • Affiliate Fundraising
  • Recruitment of Volunteers for Friday before the Walk and Walk Day


The first meeting of each committee will be during the weeks of January 6 and 13, 2020. Download the NAMIWalk Committee Descriptions (Word docx) to learn more about each Committee.
