On May 24, 2019, I will hit the Pacific Crest Trail and begin walking from Mexico to Canada. That's 2,650 miles. 

I will be doing this to complete a personal goal and to raise money for mental health organizations. As someone who has struggled with depression and seen its effect on people close to me, I can think of no better cause. 

All of your donations will be strictly for the charity. Your participation in this project would mean a lot to me. 



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.
