Welcome to the Battle of the Branches Hike for Hope







Join us for the Battle of the Branches Hike for Hope starting in May, Mental Health Awareness Month! This very special event is raising funds and awareness to reduce the rate of suicide amongst our veterans.  Funds raised allow us to educate the public about mental health and suicide prevention, fund vital scientific research, support veterans affected by suicide and advocate for public policies in mental health and suicide prevention.

Walk during the month of May and help us raise $20,000! 


How can you help?

  • Register for the event. 

  • Create a team and challenge others to create a team for some friendly competition!  Let's get all branches of the US Military represented! Top Teams/Branches will receive special recognition on social media and AFSP site!

  • Raise funds and encourage your team members to do the same! 

  • Track your miles and earn incentive badges.

Learn more about tracking your activity and FUNdraising ideas here!
