NAMI Virtual Walk 2020

This is the weekend I would normally be walking with my friends from NAMI North Central Massachusetts at Artesani Park near Boston as part of our annual 2020 NAMI Walk. This whole global pandemic has put the kibosh on that idea, but the need still exists, so we will be walking virtually this year.

I’ve spent the last couple of months cooped up at home, but to keep occupied, I have participated the the Worldwide Teddy Bear Scavenger Hunt, the opportunity for all of us to distract ourselves when we are out and about, searching for teddy bears at the window.

This weekend, to celebrate the Walk, I will be seeing how many miles I can rack up with my Zoom Meeting account and other methods. I’ll let you know how it goes. To follow along, click on the comments below.

Donations to this important cause are greatly appreciated:

This is our 9th year participating in this incredible event.
