Thank you to every Stride participant, volunteer, donor, speaker, sponsor and vendor for making the 2019 NAMI Bucks County Stride for Mental Health Awareness the most successful and best-attended to date with over 500 participants. We also achieved 114% of our fundraising goal. Words can’t express how much we love and appreciate each and every one of you for helping to build better lives for all Bucks County residents affected by mental illness.

Our top individual fundraiser is Jamie Gairo, and our top fundraising team is Alex’s Unfinished Story! THANK YOU!

We also can’t thank Rich and Kathleen Campbell enough for matching the walker donations. We will bring you a final total as soon as it’s available, and send us your photos so we can post them!


We walk on Saturday, May 18, 2019 in Warminster Community Park to raise awareness, to end the stigma that surrounds mental health, and to raise the funds necessary to support our education and support program expansion throughout Bucks County.

There is help, there is hope, and until there's a cure, there's NAMI!

Make a General Donation!




Our fundraising goal: $50,000
