I will be participating in the HIKE for Mental Health. I would appreciate any support that you give me for this worthwhile cause.

I am participating in this benefit to raise the awareness of Mental Health for Military, Veteran and First Responder Suicide intervention, prevention, and education.  As studies have shown we hiking has been used as a way to cope with mental illness.

I hope you will consider supporting my participation in this event.

ABOUT Bear Mountain Oktoberfest 2018

1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.

I chose to join the Bear Mountain Oktoberfest 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.
