ETHOS Kickstarter Campaign

From Kristin Dillenburger

We are kicking off our first fundraising campaign for ETHOS! ETHOS provides the opportunity and equipment for disabled veterans to discover themselves and navigate the war within by spending multiple weeks thru-hiking.

“The mountains are my bones, the rivers are my veins.The forests are my thoughts and stars are my dreams.The ocean is my earth and its pounding is my pulse.”– Albert Einstein

Ecopsychology is a therapeutic technique and ideology that tries to treat people psychologically by bringing them spiritually closer to nature. By spending time thru-hiking, veterans connect with nature while challenging their own mental and physical barriers.

Our veterans have sacrificed more than most will ever know. Even after their time of active service, they continue to sacrifice. They long for the brotherhood and camaraderie they once felt, and often feel like they don't belong or are misunderstood in the civilian world. Depression, anxiety, PTSD and suicide are the well-known aftermath of service for many. 

Along the way, ETHOS will provide the gear and the tools for a successful trek - including rekindling that sense of brotherhood and camaraderie every step of the way.

Where the trail starts, healing begins.
