On August 24th I'll be joining Hike for Mental Health's journey up the Jewell Trail on Mount Washington.  I'm aiming to raise $200 dollars to support this organization's work in raising awareness, provide healing, help, dialogue, and a healthy active outlet surrounding mental health issues.  I've battled Bipolar Disorder and substance misuse for the majority of my adult life.  I come from a family with severe mental health problems where silence, shame, and stigma were attached to these struggles.  I have found some peace through recovery in exercise, nature, and hiking with my dog Violet.  I ask that you help me support this adventure where I get to connect with a community of folks who do some very important work combatting mental health stigma and discrimination.  Thank you, Leigh

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.
