I once fed the stigma and now I'm fighting it.

Mental health is no joke.

Conditions or illnesses.

Experience taught me that.


But, it's ok not to be ok.

It's also ok to talk about it.

Darkness wins when we fail to shine light on it.

Shining light is my objective here.

Personally and publicly

It would be a bonus if I could help raise funds for this trustworthy and impactful organization.

How about a dollar a mile?

Thank you for your time, support, and contributions to ending the stigma. 




ABOUT Appalachian Trail

1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.

I chose to make HIKE for Mental Health a part of my Appalachian 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.
