Heather McSween

Hi there! Thank you so much for visiting my Wilderness Heals fundraising page!

In just a few short weeks I have a wonderful opportunity to combine my love of the outdoors with my passion for supporting survivors of Domestic Violence.   On July 14th, I will take part in a three-day, all-women hike through the White Mountains to raise awareness of Domestic Violence and to raise funds to support 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 help others learn how to be empowered to live their lives the way they want to.    

I hike 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 hike in remembrance of those who have lost their lives this year due to domestic violence.  I am hoping this hike will help make more people aware that there are resources available to help.  

 Any donation you make to my fundraising is greatly appreciated.  It will make a difference.   Thank you so very much!
