Your best bet is probably to post this message on our Facebook page. You will get more eyes on your request there. The link is http://www.facebook.com/iHIKE
I tried to look for the Facebook page, but it didn’t link up when I clicked the link.
I want to do a hike for former foster “orphans” (people that timed out of foster care when they turned 18, or were emancipated out with no family to lean/rely on) that have struggled with depression, homelessness, and other obstacles.
I am a former foster, and I have struggled all my life to cope with the emotional, and psychological damage that I endured from my family, foster families, and subsequent dysfunctional personal relationships. I was thinking of embarking on my hike on my birthday in May this year. My hope is to raise awareness for older (or any) former foster kids that were basically abandoned at 18.
I want to find a way to help them now. I have a few ideas, but I don’t know where to start 🙂
Our Facebook page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/iHIKE/.
Regarding your question, your cause sounds like a worthy one. While our focus is on raising funds for mental health research, I will send you an email with my contact information so that we can talk about ideas that might help you get started. Thanks,
I live in San Diego. Me and my husband are bulgarian and use to hike a lot in our country. we don,t have a car and stile don’t know the aria. We moved in San Diego in 2007. I am mental ill . If you have a hike here in the aria please call us.
Hi Boriana, Our closest hike to you right now is in Santa Clarita, a little north of LA. That is probably too far away for you. Keep checking the schedule – we are always adding events.
Hey everyone in the San Diego area, anyone want to lead a HIKE for Mental Health there? Let me know if you are interested in learning more.
Hi I live in New Jersey (central part) and missed the hike on May 22. Is anyone planning another hike in NJ or PA?
Hi Nina. Yes, we have volunteer hike organizers who are working on hikes near Delaware Water Gap and also near Bear Mountain, NY for late summer or the fall. If you want to be notified of new hikes when they are posted, just subscribe to this site using the field on the upper left of this page. Thanks!
I have several different ones I would like to add for next summer. All in the San Jaun Mountains Colorado. Anywhere from 6-12+miles RT out and back.
That sounds great, Nicole. The link to the form to volunteer to lead a hike is here: http://www.hikeformentalhealth.org/volunteer-opportunities/lead/
I am finishing up the PCT in 2017 and registered my hike on here and set up a page but how do I log in my miles???
Thanks for signing up! To add miles, just go back to the same page on which you signed up, scroll to the bottom, find your name, and click “Update” next to the mileage. Here’s the link: https://www.hikeformentalhealth.org/hike-schedule/hikeoctober/
Leaving tomorrow for Barcelona, Spain. I will be hiking the Camino Frances, from St. Jean Pied-de-Port, France, across the Pyrenees and to Compostela, Spain. It will be about 500+ miles. I hope to fund raise for Hike for Mental Health.
That’s great, Kurt! Have an amazing trip! And thanks for making HIKE for Mental Health part of it.
Hi I’m wondering if there’s any groups in Minnesota preferably more towards the North Shore that possibly hike the SHT (Superior Hiking Trail)
Hi Terra, thanks for the question. Unfortunately, we do not have any planned hikes in Minnesota yet this year. We are an all-volunteer group, so we rely completely on volunteer hike organizers. If you know folks that might want to volunteer to lead a hike in the area, we are happy to work with them on it. Minnesota is gorgeous state for hiking and paddling.
I’m in SC! Anyone from here and interested in some trails?
I’m looking for Hikes within a 25 mile radius of the Harriman State Park area in NY. Can you provide information?
Hi Linda, are you looking to join a HIKE for Mental Health in that area, or just looking for good hiking trails there in general?
I’m new at this. I registered awhile ago but did not understand where to log my rides or what to do. Can someone guide me.
Sure, Janice. Just go the main page for your hike. In this case, I am guessing from your email that it is the At Your Pace page which is here: https://www.hikeformentalhealth.org/at-your-own-pace/. Scroll to the bottom to find your listing and click the update button to add your miles. Did that answer your question?
Hello !! Im interested in joining a hike in october/november. I am open to doing any trail!!
That’s great. You’ve found the right page. It lists available hikes. https://www.hikeformentalhealth.org/hike-schedule/.
A friend brought me on this past mt Washington hike. The jewel trail is a pretty section. The crew are some real fine people. Thanks Angelo
Best wishes on your Hike Love And God Bless Mum
Wondering if there is a way to create a Facebook fundraiser for the event? I’m hiking Mt Washington in August 🙂
Traci, the best thing to do is to share the link to your HFMH fundraising page on Facebook. That way the donations will get credited to you and to the Mt. Washington hike. If you do a Facebook fundraiser, we won’t know where the money comes from since Facebook just sends us a lump some check each month. Does that make sense? Do you need me to show you where to find your fundraising page?
