Support mental health research & wilderness trail maintenance.

Hello! I'm Barb Carr. Thank you for visiting my fundraising page to support mental health research & wilderness trail maintenance..

Would you like to address a critical issues impacting our families and community instead of wishing it could be better? All of us know friends and family members who struggle with mental health issues. It is part of the human experience for many.

If you had a friend or family member who had the flu, would you discourage them from getting treatment? Of course not! However, people who suffer from mental health issues often will not seek treatment due to stigma or well meaning friends who tell them to "snap out of it" or "just stay strong." If this issue is not addressed we will keep seeing tragedy after tragedy, from suicide to school shootings. You can help with your donation!


ABOUT Piney Falls Trail

1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.

I chose to join the Piney Falls Trail HIKE for Mental Health to raise funds for a great cause and reduce the stigma of mental illness.

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 programs to alleviate the suffering of mental illness including 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.
