Welcome to Construction Hike for Hope

The Construction Hike for Hope is an event meant to engage the construction industry on the importance of mental health and suicide prevention.  According to the CDC's data on suicide risk within occupational groups, the construction and extraction industries were found to to have the highest rate of suicide in the United States.  Our first state-wide Construction Hike for Hope was a huge success raising $163,000!

Join us as we combine efforts across the state of Florida on Saturday, April 20th.  One day -  six locations.  

In lieu of a participation fee please consider a donation to help break the stigma.
