Goal: 25.0 miles
29.2 miles completed
I chose to join a hike with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails.
As most of you know, I love hiking and being outdoors. Not only for my physical health but for my mental health as well. I have found that hiking is a great way to relieve anxiety and being outdoors brings a true sense of peace. I’m hoping to complete a total of 25 miles in October, while walking and hiking in Maine.

I think we can all agree that mental illness has affected us all in one way or another, whether it be personally, a friend, or a family member. Anything to support this is greatly appreciated!
