THE STORY:

As many of you know, shortly after the birth of Cole, Allison (and our family) struggled with a fairly serious case of postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety. While we have been blessed to see Allison continue to recover, we wanted to host this climb/walk to support Allison and raise awareness of postpartum depression. Many of you have graciously offered your support and asked what you can do to help. This may be the best way to continue to show your support and learn that it's not "just the baby blues." 

While we already had our walk you can still donate to the cause! As additional motivation, Allison and I will match all donations up to $1,500...actaully now we will match up to $2000!!! Additionally, my company will match all funds we raise for this event. If you donate $25, Allison and I will match that $25 and Macquarie (my firm) will match both! That means every $25 you donate will grow to be $100 in supporting the battle against postpartum depression and anxiety.

Thank you all for your support through the dark times and as we Climb Out into Summer and supporting this cause!

Paul, Allison and Cole
