Join NAMI Collier County’s 21st ‘Hope Shines’ annual mental health awareness walk on May 6

Participants can also sign up for the outdoor event that raises money, hope and awareness
NAMI Collier County has announced sponsorship and registration opportunities for its 21st annual Hope Shines mental health awareness Walk on May 6, during mental health awareness month.

The annual walk will be held from 8:30 to 11 a.m. at Baker Park in Naples and will include music, refreshments, face painting, balloon animals and family-friendly fun for participants. The outdoor scenic walk supports NAMI Collier County. Grand marshals are Reg and Sandra Lee Buxton.

“This walk provides a positive gathering for friends and families to support mental health awareness and lift up the programs and people supported without cost by NAMI Collier County,” said Beth Hatch, CEO of NAMI Collier. “Due to Hurricane Ian, we postponed our fundraising annual luncheon, just as circumstances were resulting in an increase of needs for our free mental health services, so this walk helps us raise additional funds.”

Participants can form teams, and event sponsorships and table sponsorships are available.
