Wilderness Heals

Wilderness Heals is a pledge hike that builds and engages a community of supporters to raise money for the Elizabeth Stone House families and individuals.

The three-day, all-female hike covers several parts of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Wilderness Heals route options offer a range of trails accessible to individuals with varying levels of experience including a backcountry camping option. Hikers spend three days hiking and two nights at Appalachian Mountain Club huts, which provide beds, blankets, dinner and breakfast.  The backcountry camping option affords hikers the opportunity to experience the wilderness in a supportive environment.  Participants on this leg pitch tents and cook their own food. 

Round-trip transportation between Boston and the trailheads is provided. Hikers are required to participate in one training hike, attend a Mandatory Safety & Logistics meeting and raise a minimum of $1,500. 

Any woman who wants to meet the physical, emotional, and fundraising challenges of the hike is welcome to participate! This includes: seasoned hikers and new hikers, outdoor enthusiasts and newbies to nature, survivors of domestic violence or trauma and their supporters, and anyone seeking the opportunity to embark in adventure and camaraderie while raising money for an amazing cause!

In 2008 grateful patient and brain cancer survivor Tom DesFosses found “A Reason To Ride”.  Tom was diagnosed with primary CNS lymphoma, a cancerous brain tumor, in 2007 Tom rode his bike over 750 miles thru New England.  In 2008, Tom started “A Reason to Ride”, an annual bike-a-thon through the North Shore that raises critical funds for cancer care and research at BIDMC.

To date, A Reason to Ride bike-a-thon presented by Fuddruckers raised over $650,000.  We were and continue to be grateful for the generous support of those who donated, volunteered, and participated in the Ride.

Plans are underway for the eighth annual A Reason to Ride presented by Fuddruckers!  This year’s event will be Sunday, September 11, 2016.  The ride will start and end at 75 Sylvan St. in Danvers, MA.  Festivities kick-off at 8:00 a.m., and participants are given the choice of a 10, 25 or 50 mile ride through the scenic North Shore towns of Danvers, Wenham, Ipswich, Essex, Gloucester, and Topsfield.  The day is full of music, food, raffles, and activities for the whole family.  This year will mark our forth annual trike-a-thon for youngsters interested in participating in this fun day.
