We all have a unique journey and hobbies that nurture our mental health along the way. For me, I seek comfort and rejuvenation while connecting with nature in the backcountry.
I want to use my Pacific Crest Trail 2650 miles journey (hiking May 2023 – Sept 2023) to share the simple joy and experiences of hiking a long trail (via blogging with HIKE for Mental Health, The Trek, and personal Social Media) while bringing hope to those who battle mental illness.
I am teaming with HIKE for Mental Health to spread awareness of mental health issues and help raise funds for both mental illness research and wilderness trail conservation. 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!
