Goal: 100.0 miles
0.0 miles completed
Falling in love with hiking was the best thing for my mental health. At a time when I was really struggling and not able to change my circumstances, I found peace and comfort in the outdoors. Growing up, mental health was not something that was discussed often, and I felt like I had no one to turn to for help. I am hiking this October to show my friends and family that I am here for them as well as to show those struggling that it truly does get better.
I chose to join a hike with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails.
