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 2008

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2008 Wilderness Heals Hike. Collectively, hikers raised $115,000 for the Elizabeth Stone House. In spite of wretched weather and injuries (or perhaps because of them), this year's Hike proved to be quite unforgettable.

Stay tuned for more information regarding the fourteenth annual Wilderness Heals Hike, to be held July 17-19, 2009. And don't forget about the reunion hike this fall. Date, time, and place will be announced soon!
