THE STORY:

I am co-chairing this event!

This is the second year for Climb Out of the Darkness and the FIRST year it is making its appearance in Pittsburgh!   Our Climb but it will be at Schenley Park-at the Oval Pavilion- Saturday, June 21st at 4pm.

Please click the REGISTER button on this page, if you would like to Climb with us or help us fundraise.  Every person climbing, even if you are not able to donate or fundraise MUST register, as you may not do the physical climb unless you have registered on this site this year due to liabilty and the need for individual signed waiver.

The trail will be stroller friendly if you'd like to bring your child(ren) and we are looking for Moms that have survived or are currently struggling with PPD to walk with us.   Friends and family members may also walk, along with anyone that would like to walk "In Memoriam".

Please email Vanessa at climbingoutpgh@gmail.com if you have questions or for more details

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.

 

And now to get climbing!
