Hike to Heal - In Loving Memory of Joshua Perry
Fundraising Page Image

On November 19, 2018, my brother took his life. We all struggle with this loss, but I want to focus on the positive as much as possible. Josh struggled with depression and it got the best of him. With that being said, he did have a passion for the outdoors and especially hiking. I would like to celebrate what would have been his 30th birthday with a hike in Greenville, SC. I invite all friends and family to share this experience with us. His birthday is April 19 but we will schedule the hike Saturday, April 20, 2019. Time to be determined as we will drive up early that morning! I chose this organization to donate to because of HIKE for Mental Health being 100% non-profit. 80% of money is donated to research and 20% to preserve wildnerness trails.

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.
