Goal: 50.0 miles
29.0 miles completed
I will be hiking 50 miles this October in support of Hike for Mental Health’s #hikeOctober. Hike for Mental Health is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to alleviating the suffering of mental illness. Hiking combines two important tools for improving mental health: exercise and nature. Join me this October in #hikeOctober to raise public awareness and funding for scientific research and programs dedicated to battling mental health illnesses.
1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.
