Just one more week until your hike for mental health, sponsored by Cal U's Chi Sigma Iota & Student Counseling Association! Hike organizers Lacie, Angelina et al. are looking forward to seeing you there!
With a week to go, the hike is just a few dollars away from its $1,000 fundraising goal. If you would like to be part of the fundraising effort (or want to get the awesome HIKE for Mental Health shirt!) and you haven't shared your hike page yet, please give it a go! Every penny we raise will go toward brain & behavior research and trail conservancy.
Here is some important information you need to prepare for the hike.
