Hi there! Thank you so much for visiting my Wilderness Heals fundraising page!
The July 2017 Wilderness Heals hike is over but it's not too late to donate in support of the Elizabeth Stone House!
Located in Roxbury, MA, the Elizabeth Stone House helps homeless and at-risk survivors of domestic violence and related trauma achieve greater safety and stability.
The Stone House provides residential and community- based programs, as well as an emergency domestic violence shelter for those who are in immediate need. The Stone House helps families heal and individuals reclaim control over their lives.
Any donations made to my fundraising efforts will have a direct impact on a survivor to help them learn the skills necessary to reclaim control over their lives.
I chose to participate in this hike as a way of giving back. I was personally impacted by domestic violence and left an abusive relationship years ago after reaching a point where I knew I just could not continue to subject myself to his temper and control issues for one more second. I want to support others in their journey so they are empowered to live their lives the way they want to.
I hiked in honor of the residents of the Stone House who will now have a voice because of the awareness brought about by Wilderness Heals. I also hiked in remembrance of those who lost their lives this year due to domestic violence.
Any donation you make to my fundraising is greatly appreciated. It will make a difference. Thank you so very much!
