For the second year in a row, Team California has knocked it out of the park, putting on another great hike in Placerita Canyon, near Santa Clarita, and raising more than $3,700 over two years!
Thanks to hike organizer Laura Skorich and the many hikers of all ages (even the 4-legged one) for carrying on the HIKE for Mental Health tradition in California!
Thanks also to the sponsors and contributors to the fundraising effort.
80% of the funds raised will support programs to alleviate suffering from mental illness, including scientific research to find causes and treatments for depression, schizophrenia and other major mental illnesses.
And the remaining 20% of the money will help preserve wilderness trails. This year, that money will be split between the Placerita Canyon Nature Center and the Community Hiking Club for their work on Dagger Flats.
Thanks to everyone for making the second annual Placerita Canyon hike such a hit!
