Miles for Mental Health & Wellness Walk and Symposium
September 9 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
On September 9th, 2017, NAMI Geauga will be hosting the Miles for Mental Health & Wellness Walk and Symposium in Burton, Ohio. Previously, NAMI Geauga has held the Miles for Mental Health Walk in order to raise funds for community programs here in Geauga County. This year, we’re expanding the event and incorporating a wellness symposium featuring local health experts, businesses, and agencies.
NAMI Geauga will highlight 8 Whole Health and Wellness life skills necessary for success. Event workshops and activities will be held throughout the morning that promote healthy living, followed by our annual fundraising Walk from Berkshire High School through historic Burton, Ohio. Register online at: NAMI Geauga Miles for Mental Health & Wellness Walk. Your passport to Wellnesses begins at 9:00 am at Berkshire High School in Burton, Ohio, followed by our Walk at Noon!
The day will begin at 9:00 a.m. with the Health & Wellness Symposium where attendees will have the opportunity to speak with local businesses and health experts, partake in health related activities like depression screenings, and join group workshops where they’ll have the chance to learn valuable skills. At noon, the symposium will come to an end, and attendees will take a short lunch while listening to special guest speaker Loree Vick (former Fox 8 Anchor). After lunch, we’ll begin registering for the walk and making our way to Burton Square to show support for those with mental illness. #mi4mh
