1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.
I chose to join the Bear Mountain Oktoberfest 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 throughout the year. This Bear Mountain Oktoberfest hike is the one hike a year which helps to offset the cost of operating HIKE for Mental Health. This hike helps make all our other hikes and activities possible.
Your donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by the IRS. Thank you for your support.
