I chose to join a hike with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails.
Would you consider making a donation, leaving a message, or sharing this page?
As many of you know, after taking a decade long break from the trails, now I’m back in the wilderness, walking the NorthEastern foot-trails for the last two years. I walked over 556 miles, met with many wonderful souls and organizations, learned so much more about individual impact we have in conserving our natural resources.
Now I wish to take it to the next level. I am in the process of donating my miles to a cause I deeply care about, Mental Health! As a first step, I am organising a 5.8 mile moderate hike on October 2, 2021 as posted below. I would like to invite you to come hike with me, share your experiences and expertise, and donate for the cause if you find this meaningful to you.
We will meet in front of the fire station on landing road at 8:15am, will follow teal blazes westward, loop around and finish at the fire station. Estimated finish time is 11:30. Please feel free to reach out to me directly for further details, if you would like to join the hike. Please plan on carpooling as parking is limited at this location. Please follow social distancing recommendations and COVID-19 guidelines.
