To participate in Hike for Healing we are asking supporters to join Team Baltimore via Crowdrise, and raise or donate at least $50: crowdrise.com/team-baltimore
We will have an exciting program of activities such as quilt squares, hiker themed selfie booth, and a self care pillow making station! Hike for Healing will also feature an amazing group of performers,poets and activists!
Hike for Healing's base at Druid Hill Park is the Columbus Pavilion. The pavilion has a concrete path leading from the sidewalk to it and is made of bricks. There are picnic tables and we will bring fold out chairs. There is no accessible bathroom.
