I am thru-hiking the Colorado Trail with my dog this summer, for a lot of personal reasons in regards to my own mental health.  Walking my dog is one of the best forms of therapy I have found.  I also believe a dog is happiest when it is with its human and outdoors in nature.  So spending the whole summer walking her across the Colorado Trail  sounded almost perfect.  I try to be an advocate for mental health and suicide awareness when I can.  I heard about this amazing organization on the Backpacker Radio podcast and it seemed like the perfect way to turn my hike into something productive and meaningful to more than just me and my dog.

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.
