In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month in May, we are inviting all hikers, walkers, runners, family, and friends to walk various trails while raising funds for AFSP.

We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to the Jacquelyn Bogue Foundation for their generous sponsorship match, making their total contribution to this year's event $5,000!!!!

While our Hike for Hope will be offered virtually this year, our mission to Save Lives and Bring Hope to Those Affected by Suicide has not changed. We are a strong and resilient community, united in our effort to fight suicide, raise awareness, educate our communities, support those who have lost loved ones, and support those with lived experience.

All participants that are registered for the OC Hike for Hope will be entered into a raffle for a box of chocolates generously donated by Sweet Saffrons. A winner will be announced each week starting on Thursday, April 8 and ending on Thursday, May 27 -  eight winners in all! REGISTER NOW!

Congrats to this week's winner, Sana from Irvine!!!

This is a month long virtual event so participants can hike at their own trail location.

Be sure to take photos of your adventures & tag #OChikeforhope on social media!
