Please help me raise money for My Hike for Mental Health. People like my sister and so many others need your support.  My sister was in a horrifc accident when she was 17 years old. She was in a coma for several months. During her recovery she had another accident.  Friends were driving her to the beach. Over several months she was finally diagnosed with a mental illnes.   She has endured whatever life has thrown at her and yet has such a positive attitude. She loves people and especially animals.

I will be hiking the Appalachian Trail in July through the end of August this year. The states that I will be hiking are New Hampshire and Maine. I am not asking to support me as I have all I need. I am asking you to donate to this very worthy organization.

How it works: 

Hikers sign up for a hike or a walk. Using the Hike for Mental Health website, participants set a fundraising goal. Mine is $ 500.00.  Then Hike for Mental Health distributes 100% of the money I have raised from the hike to alleviate suffering from mental illness and to preserve wilderness trails.

As an all volunteer organization, their expenses are low.100% of the donations received from the hikes (such as mine) goes to our programs. Eighty percent fuels programs to alleviate suffering due to mental illness. The majority funds scientific research grants administered by the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation. Twenty percent helps preserve wilderness trails, especially through the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and the Pacific Crest Trail Association.


Please help me with your donation,


Susan Jeter

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.
