The annual MHF hike is always a success!


Every year MHF organizes a hike. It is a fun event to remind Sint Maarten's community that physical activity is not only good for your body but also for your mind!
Organizers: Cyrille-Brooks and Ryane Bowers

MHF hosted its annual "Hike for Mental Health" over the Easter weekend, on the 3rd of April 2021.

This year's hike commenced at St. Dominic high school to Valley Estate. Participants were treated with water, health drinks, fruits, and raffle prizes at the end.

Hiking is recognized as a great way to keep fit and maintain a healthy weight, benefits for our emotional well-being are often ignored. When we exercise, we release feel-good hormones known as endorphins into our bloodstream. This natural high helps reduce stress and anxiety, calming and relaxing both the body and mind. Research shows that people, who spend more time in nature, and less time with technology, are up to 50% more creative when it comes to problem-solving tasks.

During these times when money is tight, hiking is one of the most accessible types of exercise around costing nothing and can be done at any time and anywhere.

Stay informed about the next hike! We will announce it on our event page and Facebook.

Before that, don't hesitate to go hiking for your own wellbeing!
