Opening Up to a New Day

On your feet, participants! Join us as we step into NAMIWalks Your Way Connecticut 2022, which promises to be our most meaningful event ever. This is a 5K (3.1M) Walk around the park.

It’s a new day for mental health and we will embrace it together on Saturday, May 21 at Bushnell Park in Hartford, CT. We are thrilled after two years to be able to come together in-person for a fun filled morning with something for all ages: special guests, face painting, walk warm up, music, sponsor tables and much more to be announced soon!

Join Us with your Teams of Family and Friends.

Please plan to arrive between 8:30am and 9:30am to meet up with your Team

Offline Team and Individual Registration/Check-In opens at 9:00am

If you have cash or checks on Walk Day visit the Registration Tent

If you raised $100, you will receive a ticket to pick up your event T-shirt

Walk route is stroller and wheelchair friendly!

Leashed Pets Welcome

Special guests and Kid's Tent with crafts!

Kick-Off events start at 9:45 following pre-walk warm up and a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10:00am


Can't join us at the park? Walk, run, ride a bike or whatever activity you enjoy, by yourself or with family/friends from where you are and share your live streams, videos and photos with us.


You won’t want to miss it — a vibrant gathering where inspiration can shine on all of us.

We’ll cheer each other on while raising our voices to be heard, united in our commitment to raise awareness of our cause, funds to drive NAMI’s free, top-rated programs, and build community in every sense of the word. Let's open up doors for everyone from every walk of life to have access to the mental health resources and community they deserve.

It's never too early to get started, so today is the perfect day to register yourself, or your team, and start fundraising.

We are determined reach a greater number of participants than ever before. And when your friends and family hear about how committed you are to NAMI Connecticut's mission and work they will be motivated to join your team and help you raise money. The funds raised through NAMIWalks Your Way Connecticut help so many others in the NAMI community — with awareness, programs, and advocacy.
