Meet our team.
The people behind the scenes.

Meet Mike.

Founder & Chairman of The Hike With Mike Foundation.


I started the Foundation in 2020, not long after losing two close friends to suicide. Before that my brother had battled with mental illness, ultimately costing him his life through addiction.

I always knew I wanted to do something, but never knew what. Then it came to me…. I love hiking, and I love helping people, so why not combine the two?! 

To date, we’ve hiked over 80,000km, have funded therapy for over 150 brave individuals, been featured on BBC News, and worked with some of the biggest brands in the world 


Committee member and trustee for The Hike With Mike Foundation.

“I wanted to be involved as soon as I saw the work Mike was doing. I have a background professionally and personally in Mental Health, Autism, and Neuro Diversity- as well as being an avid hiker and adventurer! In my spare time, I’m a runner, hiker, camper, paddleboarder, wild swimmer, and single parent to 2 wonderful children.

What Mike does is nothing short of brilliant and I’m so happy to be a part of it.”


Motivated by a strong desire to support those facing mental health struggles, I have followed Mike and his foundation's work on social media for a while now, deeply inspired by their impact on people's lives. 

With skills acquired over the years in various fields, I now have the time, energy, and passion to contribute everything I can to their cause. 

Beyond that, I find solace and rejuvenation in spending time outdoors, whether it's hiking, running, or embracing new challenges along the way. 

I'm thrilled at the prospect of lending my support and can't wait to make a difference in any way I can.


I first heard of Hike with Mike after lockdown, and joined a my first hike because I felt isolated and it was impacting my own mental health. Since then I have attended most hikes and it’s been great to watch the charity grow.


The work the charity does is fantastic!


My background is working in education, working with young people and supporting their wellbeing. I wanted to join to help educate and raise awareness of how people can look after their mental health. 


When I met Mike and heard about ‘The Hike With Mike Foundation’, I instantly wanted to get as involved as possible. The work Mike and the team do is truly inspiring and such a fun charity to be involved in. I am relatively new to the charity but want to get as immersed as possible behind the scenes and on the hikes.


Since joining the team I have taken on the role as ‘Chief Navigation Officer’ and completed my Mental Health First Aider.


I'm really looking forward to driving the corporate partnership and brand awareness side of the charity.
