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.

More Photos from Memorial Day Weekend

First-year hiker Nika Stoop recently submitted photographs from her first training hike over Mount Morgan and Mount Percival. Nika is originally from Alaska, and she learned about Wilderness Heals when she met Beth Grierson--who was leading a recruitment hike--at Middlesex Fells. Nika has two dogs who love to hike and camp with her. Above: Hikers gather at the summit of Mount Percival.

Vonda, Susan, and Lucy make their way up the trail.
