No Hiker Left Behind

In 2018, I had the privilege of walking the entire length of the Appalchian Trail during its entirety over the course of a thru hike. During my hike, I had to reflect deep inside myself and come to terms with my own depression and anxiety I have battled for years. During my thru hike, I formed a great bond with another hiker, The German Passenger. Months following the completeltion of our hike. The Passenger tragically took his own life. In 2019, I aim to walk the entirety of the PCT. To raise awareness for the poor souls who have battles these struggles on a daily basis. 

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.
