Thank you for taking the time to visit this site and donate towards mental health awareness!

 

I personally have dealt with the weight of my own mental health issues, and have had many close to me suffer as well. This can include anything from depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, etc. Although I believe great strides have been taken to discuss and understand the topic at hand there is still a LONG way to go.

 

In my case dealing with depression and anxiety has been an ongoing battle. I have found that one of the best things I can do is to go hiking with my best friend, Koda (aka my Bernese Mountain Dog). In doing so I found my way to an adventurer page on facebook, which then eventually led me to the Hike for Mental Health Awareness pages, leading me to where you are currently reading.

 

As you'll read below ALL donations go towards TWO things I care about greatly. So even if it's just a single dollar it's one more closer to treatment and trail maintenance. Thank you again for your donation!
