As many of you know I have recently gotten into hitting the trails.  I've never been what I would consider an outdoorsy person so a lot of this pursuit was born of the need to get out by myself (sans kids) and do something that was cheap/free.  What I found was a love of exploring, physical exertion and a place of peace and happiness I desperately needed to feel.  It started as what was very simply an escape and instead became a place of calm I have started to take with me even without being in the woods.  So many need more help than a walk in the woods can provide on its own and this organization is determined to help facilitate that through funding research and hosting events that foster community and bring awareness to the very real issue of mental illness.  Please consider donating.  Thank you so much!

ABOUT 8th Annual Summit Mt Washington

1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.

I chose to join the 8th Annual Summit Mt. Washington 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.
