We Took Hope On the Road
The 3,700 mile journey on the historic Lewis & Clark trail completed November 2017
Over 200 years have passed since Lewis & Clark successfully completed their daunting journey across the unexplored west, and to this day they are celebrated for their bravery and leadership. Captain Meriwether Lewis is far less known however for his grave struggle with depression. He took his own life just three years after the famous expedition.
We retraced their original route in reverse, from west to east, blazing a new trail of hope. At our cathartic, slow pace we educated, inspired, and encouraged discussion about this issue with those we encountered, lighting the way toward a future free of depression and suicide.
