We wish to thank the Pacific Crest Trail Association for listing HIKE for Mental Health among its major sponsors, alongside Leki, North Face, Gregory, and other great outdoor companies. As a small, all-volunteer non-profit organization, we are honored to be listed in such great company.
Thanks to the many hikers, hike organizers and sponsors who enabled us to disburse $5,500 to the PCTA in 2014. With Cheryl Strayed’s movie Wild, starring Reese Whitherspoon, in theaters now, the load on the PCT is expected to be at record levels. We are grateful to be able to provide the PCTA with resources to help them preserve and manage that breath-taking treasure, especially this year.
Again in 2015, we will disbuse up to 10% of the funds received from our hikes to the PCTA so that they can continue their important work.
Stay tuned for news about our other planned disbursements for 2015 as well as for announcements regarding our 2015 hike schedule.
