BENEFITING: POSTPARTUM PROGRESS

EVENT: Climb Out of the Darkness 2014

EVENT DATE: Jun 21, 2014

Mary Harwood

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. 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.

 

We will be climbing at Lemoine's Point (the main entrance, not the one by the airport) at 10:30. Feel free to bring your family and friends. All need to register, even if they do no fundraise any more.

 

And now to get climbing!

Issues of mental well-being are too often left in the shadows or swept under the rug because they cannot be seen, touched or otherwise perceived other than by the persons experiencing them. Kudos to you Mary for helping open up the discussion on this very important matter. Looking forward to walking by your side. 5 years ago

To Mary: for your bravery and strength. And to the others out there (and myself) that are struggling or have struggled - you.are.not.alone. Strength comes from talking to one another - ending the stigma - sharing our stories....working through this...... "Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny." -C.S. Lewis. Thank you for this, Mary! Much love! 5 years ago
