Wilderness Heals

Thank you for visiting the Wilderness Heals blog. Wilderness Heals is an all-women, three-day annual pledge hike that benefits the Elizabeth Stone House (ESH), a Boston-based emergency shelter, transitional housing program, and therapeutic community that provides services to women and children who are escaping violence and overcoming trauma. By encouraging hikers to set challenging physical, emotional, and financial goals, Wilderness Heals mirrors the experiences of hundreds of women who have sought help from the Stone House. Committing to hike is a way to grow personally while simultaneously standing in solidarity with women of the Stone House and women everywhere who are working to overcome the effects of violence in their lives.
Wilderness Heals 2011 will take place July 15-17, 2011. Registration materials may be downloaded here.

Wilderness Heals T-shirt Sighting!

I gotta say, I love my Wilderness Heals T-shirts—even the one that's about two sizes too small for me. Call me a huge dork, but wearing the shirts always makes me proud. It's also an easy way to advertise the Hike. You might think people don't notice, but they do! Complete strangers have stopped me on the street to comment on my shirts. They'll say things like, "Hey, I've heard about that event. Have you done it? What's it like?" And then I all too happily launch into an explanation about the Hike, why it's so great, and how it benefits the women and children of the Elizabeth Stone House.

I often wear my Wilderness Heals shirt (the one that doesn't cut off my circulation) to the gym. Do any of you veteran hikers have pictures of yourselves sporting your lovely Wilderness Heals T-shirts? If so, send 'em to us, and we'll post them on the blog!
