Risks and challenges

Leaving your family behind to hike 2,650 miles over six months is no easy feat, especially as a veteran diagnosed with post-traumatic stress. Additionally, having had a broken back, Brandon is concerned about his physical ability to complete his journey.

The goal of Brandon’s trek, and our film, is to see if prolonged periods of time outdoors can really help heal a person from trauma. With that in mind, it’s quite possible the often harrowing conditions of the Pacific Crest Trail may leave Brandon, and us, at odds with our goal.

If Brandon does not complete his hike, that's still a story within itself. We have all of the production logistics figured out and locations decided upon to film, we're ready to go in full force after this campaign is concluded and look forward to sharing this film with you!
