We chose to join a hike with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails. We believe in raising awareness on mental health is vital and that those affected by mental health issues are receiving of not only understanding, but cared for and shown compassion in pathways to finding hope in healing and recovering to live a fulfilling life .
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
- 20% conserves national wilderness trails
