This is also a great time to turn in any cash or checks collected by team members during fundraising. Be sure that all donations are in a marked envelope and include the team members name so that we know where the donations go.

Use this form to save time and turn in with your checks and cash on walk day!

If you are a registered NAMIWalks participant and earn $100 before Saturday’s event, be sure to pick up your 2019 NAMIWalks t-shirt at the walk! T-shirts are limited and sizes are first come, first serve.
