Poet’s CDT Hike Fundraiser
If you are Zachary McKinney, log in to update your page.
In 2021 I thru hiked the AT and raised over $2000 for Hike for Mental Health. This year, I will be attempting to thru hike the Continental Divide Trail and am upping my fundraising goal to $3000! Your support means so much to me, thank you all.
I chose to join a hike with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails.

Hi Poet! We at HIKE for Mental Health are excited for your upcoming CDT thru hike. And, we are grateful for the fundraising you did on your AT hike. We are growing our relationship with the CDT and CDTC, and would like more photos and content from the trail. If you are interested in sharing content from your experiences on the CDT, let’s connect! My email is brayden(at)hikeformentalhealth.org. Talk soon.
Challenging oneself while being in sync with nature during a most challenging hiking adventure is surely a healthy way to improve one’s mental health and well being. Stay strong and embrace the journey, Zach!
I can’t wait to follow this new journey of yours. Sending love, light, and good vibes to you on your excursion!
