Goal: 20.0 miles
12.2 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. Mental health Awareness is very important to me as it is something that impacts everyone and learning how to better understand and cope with it has become more prominent. Normalizing the conversation is the first step in learning to better understand the issues involving mental health.
To me, hiking is an outlet to find motivation, confidence, and #hikeoctober gives it purpose. I honestly do not know where I would be without hiking, so hopefully, this inspires someone else to get out there and #hikewithpurpose.
