Thanks for being a part of my journey by supporting my fundraising hike!

Hiking on backcountry trails helps many people re-connect with nature and with places within themselves that get obscured in the daily hustle and bustle. A few days in the solitude of the trail re-grounds them and helps preserve their mental health.

HIKE for Mental Health is a nonprofit organization that operates nationwide with a mission to both increase public awareness of the challenges faced by those afflicted by mental illness and their families and to promote responsible use of wilderness trails



My challenge is hiking the John Muir Trail for my 30th birthday; a trail that stretches 211 miles from Yosemite National Park to the summit of Mount Whitney in the Sierra Nevadas. I’ll be spending three weeks backpacking in the wilderness, starting at an elevation of 9,000 feet and ending at 14,505 feet (the highest point in the contiguous United States). 


ABOUT My HIKE for Mental Health

1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.

I am taking a HIKE for Mental Health so I can raise funds for a great cause, reduce the stigma of mental illness, and help preserve wilderness trails.

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.
