Somerville resident, Aimee Deaton, is participating in the 27th annual Wilderness Heals, a 3-day, all women pledge hike taking place from July 15-17 in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  This unique event builds and engages a community of supporters to raise money for Stone House, an inclusive and essential home and community space for domestic violence survivors located in Roxbury, Massachusetts.  Deaton is participating for the first time this year.  ” I decided to participate primarily because my neighbor and friend, Jessica Gallo, one of the group leaders, encouraged me to do so,” said Aimee Deaton.  “Wilderness Heals is a great opportunity to spend time outdoors, challenge myself and support an important cause.”
