Healing Through Hiking

Hello Supporters!

Kevin and I will be hiking north bound on the Appalacian Trail throughout New Hampshire this July. (VT/NH border to NH/ME border = 161miles!)  The New Hampshire section of the AT is beautiful, often breath-taking, and physically challenging - a great combination when looking for some time to refocus.  

We walk up, you pay up.

80% of these hike donations provide grants that enable scientific research and fund programs aimed at alleviating suffering from mental illness. The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation as its principal beneficiary. 

20% of these hike donations support preservation of wilderness trails.

All of those who donate $50 or more will get an original sketch or drawing created on the trail.

Warmly, a soon to be smelly Grace Tormey and Kevin Boyle

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.
