Dear Climb Supporter,

We made it! Climb Out of the Darkness 2015, held on June 20th, went smoothly and with much success. There were over 2,300 Climbers around the world, and on our trail in North Salem, 19 adults and children supporting the work of Postpartum Progress. Thanks to your generosity, both Postpartum Progress and Team Hudson Valley/Housatonic surpassed our fundraising goals:

-Postpartum Progress raised $221,871 as of June 29th, 111% of its $200K goal
-Team Hudson Valley/Housatonic raised $2,370, 158% of our $1,500 goal. Of this amount, 15%, or $356, will go directly to the Postpartum Resource Center of NY, to provide direct support to postpartum women in NY state.

We had an amazing time on our Climb, as we celebrated the fact that each of us is a warrior in her/his own personal battle, whether as one who has/had a postpartum mood disorder, or as a family member. We made a cairn of "warrior" stones as the ancient Celts did before battle, taking our stones back upon the finish of the Climb to symbolize our survival of the battle. And we symbolically emerged from the "darkness," leaving the shaded woods to enter a clearing overlooking several lakes.

For many women, the battle isn't over, or hasn't even begun. But thanks to the work of Postpartum Progress, made possible by you and the other supporters around the world, the battle might be an easier one, as we spread awareness of maternal mood disorders and available treatment providers, and continue to offer resources such as the award-wining blog and online support community.

Thank you so much, from two Warrior Moms and on behalf of all our sisters.

Sincerely,

Stephanie Trzyna & Mariah Warren
Team Hudson Valley/Housatonic
