I have suffered through Anxiety Disorder and other mental illnesses for almost 4 decades. In that time, there has been some progress toward removing the stigma and opening up the conversation, but we still fall woefully short as a society. 

That's why I've chosen to put some miles on my hiking boots to raise funds through Hike for Mental Health to benefit Brain & Behavior Research Foundation a non-profit organization (with a 91% rating on Charity Navigator) committed to alleviating the suffering caused by mental illness by awarding grants that will lead to advances and breakthroughs in scientific research. 

Please join me in on my journey to raise awareness, raise the discussion, and raise funds. 

ABOUT Pacific Crest Trail

1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.

I chose to make HIKE for Mental Health a part of my Pacific Crest Trail hike so I can raise funds for a great cause and reduce the stigma of mental illness.

HIKE for Mental Health is a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded on the vision of a world in which everyone, including those who suffer mental illness, can find the simple joy of living.

Our mission is to alleviate the suffering of those afflicted by mental illness, eliminate the associated stigma, and to foster responsible use of wilderness trails.

As an all-volunteer organization, we distribute 100% of contributions raised by our hikers.

  • 80 cents from every dollar funds scientific research to prevent, cure, and treat mental illness
  • 20 cents maintains and preserves wilderness trails

Your donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by the IRS. Thank you for your support.
