100 Miles on the Pacific Crest Trail
From 29 June 2019 - 5 July 2019, I plan on section hiking 93 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail from Willamette Pass to Santiam Pass. I created this fundraiser after hearing about it on a podcast; I determined I should create a fundraiser for the simple fact that mental health and conservation of public lands is extremely important to me.
I'm connected to both mental health and public lands in my personal and professional life. My family history consists of anxiety and depression. I have experienced this throughout my life as well, but stopped taking medications and replaced them with spending more times in the simple life of the outdoors and other challenging activities.
In my professional life, I work with people on probation and parole. Unfortunately, many in this population have some sort of underlying mental health disorder that correlates to their criminal activity. I would like to help raise money in order to help those that are in need and don't know where else to go.
I also have a huge passion for conserving public lands for future generations and the flora and fauna that live there. I believe spending time in the outdoors has a positive effect on mental health and it's my goal to prevent the encrochment of civilization on these pristine lands.
If any of these things are important to you too, I encourage you to donate and thank you in advance!!
