Our walk to remember Bree by helping others will be on June 21, 2014 at 8am. The walk will be for 1.4 miles and start at Mission Trails information center. We will be joining forces with Postpartum Health Alliance. PHA is a wonderful organization of individuals who volunteer their time and resources to help those who are suffering from postpartum depression. They are an amazing group of people, who have also helped me channel my grief over the loss of my beautiful Breanna into the strength to carry on her spirit by helping others. Together, I know we can continue make a difference in the lives of others. Bree would be proud!
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. Also, Climb Out of the Darkness kicks ass. Just so you know.
You don't necessarily have to climb a mountain, by the way, to join in.
- You can ride a mountain bike on a trail.
- You can do a nature walk.
- You can hike a mountain trail or walk along the beach. You can 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.
Help us raise money so that we can continue to raise awareness of how women are devastated by perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, make sure women know what they need to know about PPD, eliminate stigma and support the mamas who need it.
And now to get climbing!
