Hi Friends! Thank you very much for visiting my Wilderness Heals fundraising page! I couldn't participate in this hike without the generous support of my friends and family so thank you for stopping by my page. Please donate if you can and help to raise awareness by spreading the word about the Elizabeth Stone House and all the great work they do for those at risk of domestic violence and domestic violence survivors.
The Elizabeth Stone House provides residential and non-residential programs to survivors of domestic violence by offering services and programs that teach survivors the necessary life skills to regain control of their lives and rebuild their families. What I especially love about this organization is the work they do with children of survivors to help them learn healthy boundaries; empowering them to break the cycle of violence.
This is my second year as a hiker for the Elizabeth Stone House (ESH) Wilderness Heals hike; and my first year as a Team Lead (eek!!). I am hiking again this year because last year was such a rewarding experience on so many levels. The hike itself was challenging (but fun); the views along the trails and from the top of a 4,000 footer are spectacular and raising money/awareness for the Elizabeth Stone House is a cause near and dear to my heart. As a domestic violence survivor, who was fortunate to be able to exit my situation with the support of my family and friends, it is important for me to give back to those who benefit from the important services and shelter that the ESH provides to them in their time of need.
The community that surrounds the Elizabeth Stone House is amazing and, YOU are a huge part of the success behind the Wilderness Heals campaign. Please help me support the those at risk who desperately need the resources that the ESH provides to them. Every single donation is greatly appreciated and makes a difference. If you work for a company that does a contribution match, please fill out the paperwork!
I am so very (very) grateful for all of the support you provide.
Thank you for visiting my page and for your consideration!
