More people commit suicide on Wednesday than any other day of the week. because of this I am going to start my "HIKE for Mental Health" hike of the Florida National Scenic Trail on the first Wednesday of 2018. My goal is to raise $1 for each of the 1100 miles of the trail.
The mission of HIKE for Mental Health
- Increase public awareness of the challenges and suffering faced by those afflicted by mental illness and their families.
- Increase public appreciation for and responsible use of wilderness trails.
- Raise funds, principally by coordinating fundraising wilderness hikes, in order to
- prevent and alleviate the pain caused by mental illness
- maintain and preserve wilderness trails
In distributing its net proceeds, HIKE for Mental Health will direct
- Eighty percent to scientific research to alleviate suffering from mental illness and to programs that eliminate the stigma surrounding it
- Twenty percent to preserve wilderness trails
This organization is one I can get behind! As such, not only am I pledging to Hike the 1100 miles, I will also match the first $200 in donations!
Please help me raise $1100 and help raise awareness
