We are committing to hike 100 miles in the month of November to raise awareness for those struggling with mental health and to encourage local residents to get out and enjoy this beautiful reservation right in our own backyard. The upcoming months are going to be challenging but one thing we can do to keep our minds and bodies as healthy as possible is to get out and walk in nature. Especially if you can do it in the company of friends and keep those social connections alive.
Help us reach our goal of $1,00o that will go towards the Brain + Behavior research foundation, funding scientific research and programs aimed at alleviating suffering from mental illness. And, the Pacific Coast Trail Association supporting the preservation of wilderness trails.
