About This Activity

The Aspen Strong Foundation is hosting the 1st annual Hike Hope Heal event.

Strap on your hiking shoes, fill up your water bottles and grab your friends and family - it's time to celebrate recovery and bring awareness to mental health in the Roaring Fork Community!

Join us this summer as we hike to give a voice to those suffering from mental illness, to educate our Roaring Fork Valley, and to increase awareness of the organizations that already exist within the valley.

Funds generated through HIKE HOPE HEAL will help offset the cost of mental health services for individuals in the Roaring Fork Valley and surrounding area.
