I will be hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2022. I could never imagine being able to, or wanting to do this, if it wasn’t for the difficult times I have faced and the peace I found while on the trail.
I chose to join HIKE for Mental Health to help others and to conserve wilderness trails.
I invite you to make a donation, leave a message, or share this page 🙂
80% of your donation will go to scientific research and programs focused on mental health, AND 20% will go towards preservation of wilderness trails, including my home for the year…the Appalachian Trail.
1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.

Our mission is to alleviate the suffering of those afflicted by mental illness, eliminate the associated stigma, and foster responsible use of wilderness trails.
As an all-volunteer organization, we distribute 100% of contributions raised by our hikes.
- 80% funds scientific research to understand and treat mental illness
