1st Annual PBJ2PCT
October 6-12, 2019

Wesley & Liz Hit the Trail Together for Mental Health!

There are many who struggle with mental health challenges that can be debilitating and even fatal. Parker was one who became overwhelmed by his suffering. It’s real even though we can’t see the injury.

Our mental health can directly impact our physical health and our physical health can affect our mental health. We must attend to both to thrive.

Please support Liz and Wesley as they hike every day to raise donations to help suffering young people— that they may transform their lives through Wilderness Therapy.

It’s National Mental Health Awareness Week October 6-12, 2019.

And World Mental Health Day & National Depression Screening Day October 10, 2019.

Everyone knows someone who is struggling to find their way right this very moment—whether they are dealing with addiction, substance abuse, cutting, isolation, being bullied, low self worth or simply finding no joy in their lives. Wilderness Therapy Programs work and provide hope again for families.

Please do what you can to help our youth and young adults get on the healing path through Wilderness Therapy. Our world can be a little bit better if you do.

Wesley and Liz Thank you!

We can send more than one Parker! Please help us keep making Parker’s wish come true by pledging your spare pennies with the button below.

Let’s celebrate with Parker and make it “count!”
