The Hilinski’s Hope Foundation (H3H) was founded in 2018 by Mark and Kym Hilinski to honor the life of their son Tyler. Tyler’s Mom and Dad and brothers Kelly and Ryan along with their extended families and some amazing friends created H3H in response to the outpouring of love and affection for Tyler during, and after his life.
With H3H we have created a non-profit foundation with the goal of keeping Tyler’s memory alive. We do this by sharing Tyler’s story, connecting students with mental health resources, assisting universities to institutionalize best practices and generating the funding necessary to support programs that will help destigmatize mental illness. We are able to help colleges and universities save lives, eliminate stigma, and scale mental wellness programs for student-athletes by providing the practical tools for the schools with student-athletes to implement the change necessary to bring parity to mental health in line with all other illnesses and injuries these student-athletes face.
H3H envisions a world where mental health is supported in parity with physical health and equally prioritized by universities as connected to athletic performance.
