A new year brings a new adventure. In the pandemic of 2020 I raised more than $5,000 for HFMH and thrilled to bring my next fundraiser to the CDT. I suffered alcohol and drug abuse for more than two decades and the paralyzing depression, anxiety, and that feeling of complete hopelessness. I’ve found healing and peace through hiking, nature, and helping others and excited to partner with HFMH once again to bring awareness to the struggles of mental health.
