What we're about

Would you like to be on the move rather than sitting around in a room? Join this group that provides informal support to young adults as we hike together through grief.

Hiking Through Grief allows young adults and their allies to come together to support each other, at whatever point in the healing process you are at. All are welcome whether your friend or family member is within the dying process, you lost them a week, a month, a year ago, or during your childhood. In this group, you know everyone gets it.

Our hikes are meant to be casual, simple, fun and relaxing; just a group of people who can relate to each other, connect, build supportive relationships, and share in a relevant healing experience. Hikers are encouraged to share their stories and insights, but are not required to.

Hiking Through Grief will meet monthly, on the 3rd Saturday of the month, weather permitting. Hike routes, pace, and duration will vary, so please check Meetup for future hike locations and meeting times. Typically, we will break halfway through for a break, so feel free to bring a lunch or a snack.
