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.
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!
The DFW climb will be held at the Dogwood Canyon Audobon Center. It's free to join our climb but the center is asking that each climber pay an admission fee of $7.
There is a 1/2 mile ADA apporved hike that we will be starting with. This trail allows strollers and is a good walk for anyone who doen't want to join or can't join the longer 1 2/3 hike that will come next. The longer hike takes about hour and can be a little vigorous at times.
We will have a room rented with a sign in table. Participants will be welcome to use the room to cool off and socialize before/during/after the climb.
