Goal: 100.0 miles
0.0 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.
After losing my dad 5 years ago, I took up hiking more seriously as I worked through some tough mental battles. It gave me purpose, better clarity and not to mention all the physical and mental benefits you gain from walking outdoors. Since then I’ve covered hundreds of miles in the Eastern Sierra, Southern California and beyond.
