Goal: 30.0 miles
34.8 miles completed
I chose to join #hikeOctober with HIKE for Mental Health to raise awareness,
fund mental health research and conserve wilderness trails.
This years pandemic has left visible signs of devastation-shuttered businesses,
shattered economies, lost loved ones.
Less visible, but no less terrible is the quieter emotional pain of millions of people.
Mental health doesn’t have a start & stop date.
