Goal: 20.0 miles
2.0 miles completed
During #hikeOctober, I pledge to hike at least 20 miles for HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and fundraise at least $200 to go towards resources & conserving wilderness trails. I’ve chosen this nonprofit, HIKE for Mental Health, to hike in honor of my late Uncle Danny, who passed away in 2017 after dealing with his own mental illness. I’ve included a little more information about HIKE for Mental Health‘s mission, as it means a lot to me, so I hope you’ll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me!
