Summer Salute; Hike for 22

Embark on a meaningful journey this July and August with our salute honor hike, a 22-mile trek dedicated to supporting veterans combatting PTSD, raising awareness about veteran suicide, and getting veterans and their families outdoors. This hike is not just about covering miles, but about making a difference in the lives of those who have sacrificed so much for our country. By participating in this hike and raising donations, you are directly contributing to programs and services that provide mental health support for veterans in need.

Join us in honoring our heroes by stepping out into nature, connecting with fellow hikers, and showing our veterans that they are not alone in their struggles. Together, we can make a positive impact on the lives of those who have served and their families, while also enjoying the therapeutic benefits of being outdoors. Lace up your hiking boots, pack your essentials, and join us on this journey towards healing, awareness, and support for our veterans.

How it works: Sign up here to indicate you would like to participate. Track your miles however you would like. We will be putting together some hiking activities for this group, you are not required to be present but you are more than welcome to join. Emails will be sent out when we have planned dates and times, join if you'd like! To sign up to participate, go to
