Hi! I'm Chelsea Squyres and I'm choosing the goal to raise $200 by hiking two hardy hikes in two weeks or less. The plan is to hike to the highest peak in the San Gabriel Mountains, Mt Baldy at 10,064 ft. I will also hike one of the next highest peaks, Mt. Baden-Powell, at 9,406 ft. On the hike up to Baden-Powell I will reach three other summits of Baden-Powell's neighbors to the west. In total, I'll be hiking about 24.5 miles with about 7,000 ft of elevation gain. Should be fun! Will you support my goal and help the cause? Any donation amount is welcome! Thank you!! 

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.
