I’m hiking the AT for Hike for Mental Health so that I can use my five month vacation as a vehicle to give back to people who struggle with their mental health, especially those close to me.
For a more detailed explanation of why I’m doing this fundraiser, see my blog post over at The Trek: https://thetrek.co/appalachian-trail/help-me-hike-for-mental-health/
Any donation you can give to Hike for Mental Health would be greatly appreciated!
