it began as A mental health walk.
After teaching a boot camp class, my friend Dee asked me to organize an outdoor walking club. She said after work the stress is so intense that she walks outdoors to clear her head.
A month later, I started organizing hikes.
We laughed, hiked, and always had a good time.
now it's A movement.
The small hikes continued until last year. I was browsing my group posts on FB when I learned that a member and her son had lost their lives to domestic violence.
Immediately, I wanted to DO something! So, I called Trina Lyons and we took Hiking for Hope to the masses, designing it as a retreat in one’s hometown.
Today, Hiking for Hope includes a 1-3 mile hike, scavenger hunt, self-love swag bags, and certified instructors who teach dance, yoga, breathwork and meditation techniques.
A Mission to Impact Lives.
After each hike, a portion of H4H proceeds go to a female-driven non-profit. In 2021, we donated funds to PADV in Atlanta, GA. An organization that supports survivors of domestic abuse.
For H4H 2022, a portion of the proceeds will go to I-Vets. A non-profit thrift store who donates proceeds to veteran and active duty mental illness programs.
