On a beautiful day in October, 60 people met at Lula Lake Land Trust in north Georgia near Chattanooga, TN, for a HIKE for Mental Health.
Volunteer hike organizers Emily Ellis and Cassidy Wolfe led a terrific hike. The trail had a few uphill spots but led to some beautiful bluff views!
“The hike ended by a gorgeous 80 ft. waterfall,” says Emily, “where we stopped to take a group picture! It was so great getting to meet everyone and hearing how mental health or hiking had impacted their lives!”
The group raised more than $1,000 for mental health research and trail conservancy while helping to increase awareness and combat the stigma of mental illness.
Thanks to Cassidy, Emily, and the the hikers and their sponsors for a great event!
If anyone on the hike has more pictures to share, let us know and we will post them here.
