Goal: 50.0 miles
34.2 miles completed
We first joined HIKE or Mental Health last year to summit Mount Washington and loved the group and what they stand for so much we joined them again a month later to hike Bear Mountain. This year due to covid-19 there are no group hikes, but we will still be out there in solidarity with this incredible organization raising funds for a great cause.
80% of what you donate goes directly toward grants for mental health research
20% of your donation goes toward trail conservation
We love the combination of causes as we both find peace and mental clarity in the outdoors. We have set a personal goal to saunter through 50 miles during #HikeOctober. We will go out each weekend exploring new trails and revisiting some local favorites while updating this page with our progress as we go.
We chose to hike for HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails.
Please consider making a donation, leaving a message, or sharing this page to support our goals and this great cause!
