THE STORY:

Climb Out of the Darkness is the annual awareness raising and fundraising event for Postpartum Progress, a nonprofit focused on supporting pregnant and new moms with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, postpartum OCD, postpartum psychosis and pregnancy depression.

Millions of women throughout history, and even still today, have had to climb out of the darkness of maternal mental illness all on their own. There was no support. No information. They didn’t know what was happening to them. They were convinced they were all alone. They were met with shame and stigma and judgment from others. Now Warrior Moms are joining forces to prevent that from continuing to happen. We can’t stand for it. We won’t. Maybe you have kicked one of these illnesses yourself, or you are in the grueling process of doing so.  You have climbed a metaphorical mountain of the highest heights.  Maybe you are a friend or family member who has seen how postpartum depression and anxiety can hurt new families. Maybe you just happen to believe that every family deserves a strong start. Join us in a much easier climb to raise awareness and ensure that Postpartum Progress will be there for women all around the world when they are in the darkness.  Help us shine the light of hope with our words and our advocacy efforts so that our fellow mothers will receive better information and better treatment, and their families will get off to a healthy and strong start.

Team Milwaukee Mamas will be hiking in Grafton's, Lion's Den Gorge Nature Preserve at 10am on June 21st, 2014. You can run, walk, or just stand outside and let the sun shine on your face. No matter what you do, we still call it your Climb, because it is a symbol of your climb out of the darkness of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, whether you are a long-time survivor or someone who is still climbing or someone who cares about the health of pregnant and new moms. Fundraising is not mandatory, but if you raise $100 or more you get a free Climb  out of the Darkness t-shirt.
