Hiking Miles for Smiles
Hiking the Appalachian Trail for suicide prevention
From April 7 to August 21st, 2016, my adventure sister, Danielle, and I trekked the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine to raise money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). We dedicated our 2,189 mile journey towards Mount Katahdin to loved ones who battled and are battling depression.
We aimed to raise $3 for each mile we hike- that's $6,540 for hiking the entire AT. If you are interested in donating, visit our AFSP fundraising page: Hiking Miles for Smiles.
We Did It
On August 21st, 2016, we surpassed our fundraising goal and raised over $10,000 for AFSP! We are extremely humbled by the overwhelming support we received throughout our trek from Georgia to Maine. We are endlessly thankful to our donors for contributing to such an important cause.
