Goal: 87.0 miles
88.1 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 a social worker and a hiker, this cause means a lot to me. I have personally found nature and hiking to be helpful for my own mental health. For the month of October, I pledge to hike a total of 87 miles.
