We'll be walking the beautiful trail along Lake Sammamish. We'll meet at 9:00 to kick off the day and end back at the Lake Sammamish Landing Park, walking probably an hour and a half. Here is the facebook page to the park: https://www.facebook.com/TheSammamishLanding/?fref=ts There is parking across the street from the park and the path is fully paved so strollers are welcome!
My goal with participating in Climb Out of the Darkness is to increase awareness and remove the stigma around Postpartum Anxiety and Depression. I'd also love to raise some money for Postpartum Progress becuase I've found alot of support through the organization on my journey with PPD/PPA.
Climb Out of the Darkness® is the world’s largest event raising awareness of postpartum depression, anxiety, PTSD, psychosis and pregnancy depression. The event was created by and benefits Postpartum Progress Inc., a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization that raises awareness and supports pregnant and new moms with these illnesses.
Women around the world participate in this grassroots event by going on a hike outside on the longest day of the year to shine a light on PPD and related illnesses. The event is open to anyone and everyone who supports our cause. Anyone can participate, as long as they register. Registration is free.
