“Keep close to nature’s heart and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” -John Muir
Join me on hiking this #hikeOctober while I put in some miles and raise money for HIKE for Mental Health, an organization that emphasizes the importance of being outside and conserving our trails while reducing the stigma of mental illness and raising money for mental health research. Donate, get outside, hike/bike/climb/swim/etc. and tell your friends!
Your generosity is greatly appreciated but if you can’t donate, no worries…just get out there and enjoy the outdoors (responsibly).
Much love and gratitude,
1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.
