EVENT DATE: Oct 18, 2015
Our annual walkathon raises money for our free educational programs for schools all around the Chicagoland area. These programs aim to encourage good mental health habits in schools and provide information on where children and teens can get help. We also provide tools and materials for young adults, parents, health professionals and community organizations.The goal of Erika's Lighthouse is to help communities develop a culture that allows people to talk openly about mental health so we can overcome stigma and encourage early identification and treatment of depression - protecting young lives. An incredible way to support Team Erika's Lighthouse is to help meet my personal fundraising goal of $1,000 by donating whatever you can and passing this fundraising page on to friends and family. Each dollar helps to support Erika's Lighthouse and our free educational programs. Join us and together let's "GET DEPRESSION OUT OF THE DARK!"
