Hey, Everyone! Thanks for visiting my page. My name's Brittney, and I'm currently a SOBO AT thru-hiker who is hiking to raise money for HIKE for Mental Health.

Mental health is by far one of the most overlooked and perhaps misunderstood fields of science today. Over the past few years, several of my close friends have struggled with a variety of mental health-related issues. At the time, I didn't fully understand the seriousness of their battle and ended up losing a friend as a result.

In addition to this, I myself have struggled with depression over the past few years. In my deepest moments of despair, my one saving grace has always been a greater push towards minimalism and nature. This is one reason I love backpacking. Hiking day-in and day-out with a clear goal has repeatedly given my life a greater sense of purpose and connection to the world around me. It is my hope that my thru-hike might encourage others to take a day or two to get out there and reconnect with the world around them.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my page. If you feel so inclined, I would be extremely appreciative if you would donate to this cause.

My goal is to raise approximately a dollar per mile.

Happy Trails,


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.
