Goal: 30.0 miles
0.0 miles completed
We chose to join a hike with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails. We believe and have seen the very real benefits that hiking and nature can have on one’s mental health. There is a healing that happens out in nature unlike any other experience and setting.
Hike October combines several things WehikeVA stand very passionately for. This is more than just a challenge to us. This is the reasons we began WehikeVA. Be vulnerable. Speak your truth. Stop the stigma. Get outdoors. Get some miles. Take care of our planet.
