I hike for my own mental health and while doing so, I want to support and honor those who struggle with a mental illness. It is something we all share a fight with and for some, it’s much more serious than others.
As most of you know, one of my goals is to finish the Appalachian Trial in New York and Massachusetts as Connecticut has been completed. As part of this hike, I am trying to raise money for Mental Health Awareness.
Please help me raise a minimum of $220 towards this cause. Just a couple dollars from each of you is all it takes to make a difference in someone’s life.
The reason I chose $220 is because of two things, Mission 22 (which is an organization that helps veterans with PTS and Traumatic Brain Injury. The 22 stands for the 22 veterans that commit suicide every day). Also, because the Appalachian Trail is just under 2,200 miles.
Thank you for your support.
