We will meet at the playground at Westchester Lagoon and start our walk at 4:00pm. The loop is between a mile and mile and a half and is fully paved to accommodate strollers, wagons and possibly wheelchairs, although there is a short steep uphill and downhill section. Please wear comfortable shoes, bring water and any signage you would like related to raising awareness about maternal mental health. We will walk rain or shine!
Postpartum Progress’ Climb Out of the Darkness™ is the world’s largest event raising awareness of maternal mental illnesses like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety & OCD, postpartum PTSD, postpartum psychosis, postpartum bipolar disorder, and pregnancy depression and anxiety. Climb Out is held on or near the longest day of the year annually to help shine the most light on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. The event features mothers and others across the globe joining together to climb mountains and hike trails to represent their symbolic rise out of the darkness of maternal mental illness and into the light of hope and recovery. Funds raised support the 501c3 organization Postpartum Progress (http://postpartumprogress.org) We can’t wait for Climb Out of the Darkness 2015, to be held Saturday, June 20th. Mark your calendars!
