Creating a Positive Impact on Mental Health

Through Awareness, Community, and Support.
A Mental Health Awareness Initiative

Our Mission is to enrich the lives of individuals struggling with mental health.

Bigger Than The Trail is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that is using trail running as a platform to advocate for mental health.

We come alongside individuals, providing educational support and treatment options. Please don't think our mission is limited to just people who run. This is much bigger than that. Running is not the focus; but rather the people we can impact. Our focus is to bring light to the real struggles and challenges that are associated with mental health.

“I’m so thankful for Bigger Than The Trail allowing me to get help. I was feeling lost and didn’t know where to begin. I’m glad I asked for help, and it’s been a great experience working with a counselor. I feel more like myself again, and I’m even learning more about who I am and how I can help myself in the future.”

Our Partners

“Because of Bigger than the Trail, I finally started therapy after years of apprehension. Finding affordable and appropriate mental health care is daunting and unnecessarily difficult. Thanks to this organization, I finally have the help I've been seeking for years, and I feel empowered to continue this lifelong journey. I've already shared this resource with so many friends and family. Thank you, you're amazing!”
