Hi! I’m Shannon (Trail Name: “Hot Mess”). Over my lifetime and especially this past year, I have struggled with mental illness and have made it a goal to advocate for mental health research and visibility. I chose to join up with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails by thru-hiking the 2653 miles from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail and raising money for mental health. I’d love to generate at least ONE DOLLAR for every mile I complete to be donated directly to HIKE for Mental Health.
