We all have unique mental health paths and different hobbies that nurture our minds. For me, I seek comfort and rejuvenation while connecting with nature.
I am using my Pacific Crest Trail thru hike attempt (May 2023 – Sept 2023) to share the simple joy that I experience while in nature and the link to mental health. My ultimate goal is to destigmatize mental illness by talking more openly about mental health topics, fundraising, and blogging my experiences and observations through The Trek and Instagram.
I am personally donating $1 per mile (up to $2650) that I hike on the PCT. I am amazed at how much this pledge has already empowered and encourage me to get on the trail. Check out more details of the mission and where the funds go here!
Consider joining me on my journey by making a donation, leaving a message, or sharing this page!
Thank you for your support & happy trails!
