I am aiming to raise $5,000 for the Brain and Behavior Research (BBR) Foundation during my 2017 AT thru hike, and hopefully you’d like to help! 100% of proceeds goes towards the BBR. The BBR Foundation uses funds towards NARSAD (National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression) Grants which supports research on Depression, Bipolar, Schizophrenia, Anxiety, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism, Post-Traumatic Stress, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, as well as a variety of other mental illnesses.

All donations big and small are greatly appreciated and can be given here on my fundraiser page.

The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is an accredited 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization; all donations are tax-deductible.
