Hey Everyone!

April 5, 2019, I am attempting to hike the Pacific Crest Trail starting in Southern California and ending in Canada totaling 2,654 miles! I’ll be taking 6 months away from work to hike some of the coolest landscape the US has to offer. While this is definitely going to be a great adventure and vacation, I also think this will be a great opportunity to raise $2,000 for HIKE For Mental Health. Hiking has become something that not only helps me with my physical health but is also one of the tools I use to keep my mind healthy. Anyone who has spent an extended amount of time outside hiking, camping, running or any other outdoor activity knows how beneficial these activities are to your mind.

Feel free to send me an email at if you have any questions!

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.
