Emotions Matter's 4th Annual

Walk for Borderline Personality Disorder 

Sunday, June 5, 2022 in-person NYC

or Virtual Walk in your own City

Emotions Matter is thrilled to welcome you back to our premiere fundraising event, the 4th Annual Walk for BPD.  We are offering the Walk for BPD in a hybrid format:

  • In Person - Pier 40 Picnic House Hudson River Park, New York City  Sunday, June 5, 2022 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. 
  • Virtual - Walk with a team in your community to raise awareness about BPD, and watch the Walk ceremony speakers via video.  

Choose how to Walk for BPD and Participate.

Whether it is walking as a group in New York City, or walking around the block with your dog or family, on a treadmill, or simply inside your home, Walk for BPD.  Everyone impacted by BPD can take part in this awareness day, wherever you live, your way, to provide programs which support recovery.

Invite Others to Join the Cause and Spread Awareness.

The Walk for BPD is an opportunity to educate people in your social network and community.  BPD is a serious mental illness affecting up to 1.4% of the population with symptoms including emotional dysregulation, impulsivity, and suicidality.  It continues to be a highly stigmatized and misunderstood disorder.  It's Emotions Matter's mission to change that.  Consider forming a walk team and join the cause.  

Feel Inspired and Get Connected to our Community! 

Meet Emotions Matter volunteers and others impacted by BPD at our in-person event.  Connect with others virtually through social sharing by taking pictures of your "Why I am Walking Sign,"  or posting a selfie of you walking during our Facebook Live event.  Listen to our speakers who will share recovery stories promoting hope and breaking stigma.

Raise Money to Support People with BPD.   Emotions Matter depends on financing from the BPD Walk to continue offering its programs at no cost to people with BPD.  Your gift will allow people to get free support when they need it most.
