Registration Is Free
Instead of charging a fee, we ask your help raising funds for mental health research and trail maintenance.
It’s fast and easy! When you register, you will be able to personalize a sponsorship page and share it through email and your favorite social media such as Facebook or Instagram. How does it work?
Every little bit helps, and there is no minimum to raise – we just ask that you help us spread the word, then come join us on the trail.
Get a Free Hiking Shirt
Our quick-dry shirts look and feel great, on or off the trail.
Every registered hiker who raises at least $100 will receive a HIKE for Mental Health shirt as a token of our appreciation.
Available in men’s or women’s sizes SMALL – XXL.
When you register, we will ask your size preference. Once you reach $100 in donations to your fundraising page, we will get your shirt to you.
If you hit the $100 ten days before the hike, your hike leader will have your shirt for you on hike day. Otherwise, we will mail it to you after the hike.
So help us raise money and awareness for this great cause.
For a Good Cause
HIKE for Mental Health is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
All contributions are tax deductible, and 100% of the hike donations support our mission.
Eighty cents of every dollar funds mental health programs, including break-through scientific research into PTSD, schizophrenia, bipolar spectrum disorders, depression and other major mental illnesses. Through research we can find better ways to alleviate the suffering that affects 1 in 4 American families.
The remaining twenty cents maintains wilderness trails across the U.S. By supporting non-profit, volunteer groups that care for our trails, we help preserve wilderness experiences for generations to come. Where the money goes.

Jesse Russell is an avid hiker who loves to be outdoors immersed in nature. He teaches yoga/meditation and the ancient holistic healing science of Ayurveda. “I feel that nature, hiking, and a natural lifestyle are both preventative and curative methods for remedying the modern diseases of ;being in a hurry; coupled with a ‘nature deficit'”.
Kelly Stanley is a nature lover and social worker. “Through personal experience, I have realized that nature offers a remedy to the ailments of modern life and an imbalanced society disconnected from nature. I hope to invite people to reconnect and find the balance they need while enjoying the trails and all of the benefits of hiking in nature.”
Every HIKE for Mental Health is an opportunity to:
- get away from the hustle and bustle of work-a-day life and enjoy the beauty of Nature
- renew old friendships and make new ones
- have a great time hiking with a good group of people
- stand up against the stigma of mental illness
- discover your new favorite get-away
- raise money for a great cause
