Hello family and friends,
I have been in the process planning, for several months, as I prepare to hike the Appalachian Trail. I will start my journey on February 26, 2020 hiking northbound from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Maine.
As I’ve gone through my divorce and recovery from addiction and codependency, I’ve realized just how poor my mental health was and just how poor our mental health care is. Mental health challenges have cause troubles for my family and friends. So, I’d like to dedicate my hike to improving mental health in America. I set a goal to raise $2193. That’s one dollar for every mile of the trail.
I hope you’ll donate to Hike for Mental Health.
