Trail Therapy

Hello everyone, Lorax here back on trail! Hiking long distance trails for the past three years has changed my life, I feel more at ease with myself in society today after spending time in the wilderness and meeting folks from the hiking community. I believe mental health is now being looked at as a problem that needs to be addressed. Seeing how hiking in the wilderness has helped my mental state, I’d like to try and help others get the help they need. So if you are able to or feel like helping out I am trying to raise a dollar a mile as I walk this summer on the Pacific Northwest Trail! Thanks for all your help!

Love, Lorax ✌️❤️

ABOUT My HIKE for Mental Health

1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.

I am taking a HIKE for Mental Health so I can raise funds for a great cause, reduce the stigma of mental illness, and help preserve wilderness trails.

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 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.
