Your support of NAMI allows us to continue serving northeast Indiana through support, education, and advocacy. One NAMI Fort Wayne member has said, "Our family sunk into despair when we were unable to deal with the emotional devastation of watching our loved-ones lose the ability to manage the realities of everyday life. Once-productive family members were robbed of their competency to hold a job or form meaningful relationships. We were losing all the joy in our lives. At our first visit to a NAMI Fort Wayne support group we immediately felt accepted.  We connected with several people affected by mental illness and shared ideas about helping our families. We later took Family-To-Family, a free 8 week class that empowered us to form our own strategies to navigate mental illness. Life still presents many  challenges but  thanks to NAMI we face those challenges with hope."
*During the registration process for runners age 14 and under, age-based pricing will be applied at check out.
Traffic Alert
One Block Closure of Old Mill Requires Detour to Foster Park
Fort Wayne, Indiana -- As progress continues in connecting neighborhood pipes to the Three Rivers Protection and Overflow Reduction Tunnel (3RPORT) near Foster Park, Old Mill Road between Rudisill Boulevard and West Foster Parkway will be closed beginning Wednesday, May 31, 2023. A marked detour will send motorists from the north to Foster Park using Rudisill, Fairfield Avenue, Lexington Avenue, and Old Mill to the park entrance. Motorists heading to Foster Park from the south should use Petit Avenue to Old Mill and the park entrance.
The closure is in place for around four months, when it will open with lane restrictions until the project is complete.
