Sunday Inspiration: Hiking to raise awareness about suicide

As part of my job for Recreation News, I spend quite a while each day looking (yes, I’m trolling) for great photos for readers to share using #LivePlayDo on Instagram.

Today, I stumbled across a really inspirational account – @HikingMiles4Smiles.

These two ladies are hiking the Appalachian Trail during a campaign for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. From the website:

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide.

Hannah and Danielle just recently started their hike in Georgia. They’re already 80 percent of the way to their $6,540 fundraising goal.

Donate to their cause here.
