Goal: 50.0 miles
107.1 miles completed
I chose to join a hikeOctober in memory of my mom and the struggle she had with mental illness. And to motivate me to get my lazy butt moving as the weather cools. I am honored to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve our wilderness trails.
Finacially, it’s been a tough year for many. If you able and this topic touches your heart, a donation would be great. If not, please consider sharing this page. Or even sign up for hikeOctober yourself- it’s free and is a great way to do something good together in a year when we can’t always be together.
1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.
