Since 2020, hiking has become an important resource in my own mental health toolbox. Being outside in nature on our beautiful New England trails has helped me get through a couple of very stressful and difficult years.
This year I have decided to climb Mount Washington with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails. Eighty percent of the money I raise will go to support research which will help many people experiencing mental health challenges. The remaining 20% will go to wilderness trail conservation.
Would you consider making a donation, leaving a message, or sharing this page? And if you’d like to join the hike up Mount Washington on August 27, you can sign up at HIKE for Mental Health.
