Grandmother Freefall Hikes for Mental Health

So if you know me, you know my passion for helping others. You also know my life hasn't been without it's own battles. Hiking has literally helped save my life. I want to help others and what better way than to do what I love for a good cause. My good friend and lifelong Tramily member Jeff has turned me on to an amazing opportunity. I have been asked to be a saftey sweep for the event and help ensure everyone has a safe and fun hike. Hike for mental health is a 100% non-profit. These people pay expenses out of their own pockets to put on these events, to help others in need. Eighty percent of the hike donations provide grants that enable scientific research and fund programs aimed at alleviating suffering from mental illness. Ten percent goes directly to the ATC. The last ten percent goes directly to the PCT. We will be taking to the trail, August 24th, heading up Mount Washington. I need your help to raise $ for such a wonderful cause as this. Take a few moments and explore their website and see all the wonderful things these folks do. Thank you for your time and I hope I can count on you for the support this cause needs. 

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.
