Working on my fundraising goal


#hikeOctober is a month-long social media blitz to encourage everyone to get out and hike or walk during the month of October. We hike because it is great for our own mental health; we hike to raise awareness of the stigma of mental illness; and we hike to raise money for mental health research and trail conservancy. For more details, see #hikeOctober.
