Goal: 32.0 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.
Earlier this year, my friend lost his battle against mental illness. March 2nd to be exact, that’s why I am choosing to hike 32 miles this October. To honor Colin.
Colin could light up a room the second he walked into it, literally. He could always put a smile on your face, no matter what kind of mood you were in. That is how I remember Colin- a great friend who always wanted others to be happy.
Being happy, to me, comes naturally when I am on the trails. Each blue jay that passes and the gust of wind that follows, makes me feel connected my friend.
Thank you for following along on my journey this October. All I ask is for some words of encouragement & to share my journey. You can donate to this awesome organization through my hike if you’d like to.❤️
