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.
