Goal: 30.0 miles
31.0 miles completed
I have an anxiety disorder, like so many people I know and love. Exercise is one of the self-care treatment solutions I’ve turned to in the last few years. I’m never more at peace than when I’m hiking—when the only thing I have to think about is putting one foot in front of the other.
I chose to join Hike for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails.
I’ve pledged to hike 30 miles this month. Would you consider making a donation, leaving a message, or sharing this page?
1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.
