I chose to join a hike with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails.
Hiking is a bit like life: Sometimes the journey only requires you to put one foot in front of the other…again and again and again.
This will be my second hike to help support this amazing non-profit. Something personal about me…I have an anxiety disorder and PTSD. Hiking is one of my strongest tools that helps me re-center. Being on the trails is my medicine, so how could I not support this organization who is trying to help people like me. I love their mission! For me this is personal. Would you consider making a donation, leaving a message, or sharing this page?
