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.

The day will begin at 9:00 AM 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.

We are excited to bring this event to Geauga County and rely on your continued support to bring our free programs to te community. Your sponsorships, donations, and support are vital to the success of our mission. All monetary and in-kind donations are accepted and appreciated. If you have any questions about the event, registration, sponsorship, or volunteering, please contact our Administrative Assistant at
