The recent years have been brutally stressful, especially for families. As a result many of our young are suffering from depression and anxiety. I am blessed to be able to spend two weeks this summer in the beautiful forests of Vermont while hiking on the Long Trail- a 270 mile trail from the VT/MA border to the VT/Canada border. I have already hiked the southern 100 miles of this trail twice. So, this summer I will attempt to hike the remainder from Killington to Canada. I felt that if I could use my hike to help relieve the suffering of others I should. So I am asking you to contribute 10 cents per mile of the LT I complete for a total of $27. Hike for Mental Health makes it easy. Click on ‘donate’ then search for my name or The Long Trail. I will post updates on my progress on this web page. Thank you and God bless.
