I chose to join a hike with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails. Many supported me a few years ago and I hope you will again this year.
This is issue so important to me. You may or may not know I have a sister, who at a very young age was in a horrific car accident. She suffered a brain injury. Ultimately leading to a mental illness that took control of her life.
She is a remarkable woman whom I admire for what she has been through all these years.
I will be hiking the John Muir Trail this year starting July 7th and look forward to the beauty of this trail. It won’t be easy. The physical and mental challenges will test me. knowing this hike is for my sister and others like her will push me to succeed.
