(For Parade Teams - please gather at Hope Plaza corner of Elmwood & Main beginning at 9:00am on 5/2).
Please join us May 2 to help inform the public, increase awareness, and celebrate the important role of mental health and recovery in our community! Highlight your organization's commitment to the people of the Midlands by joining the Minds on Main parade through six sponsored city blocks. Go big and extravagant or samll and modest... what's most important to us is your enthusiasm and presence in the parade! When we cross the parade finish line we will arrive at the Minds on Main block party, open to the public. Come out to enjoy a DJ, photo booth, food, local vendors, face painting, balloon artists, and more! All funds raised will go directly to support NAMI Mid-Carolina, whose mission is to improve the treatment and quality of life for people living with mental illnesses themselves or with their family and friends.
