Saturday is the Day!
June 16, 2016
I am leading this fundraiser/ hike after tragically losing a friend and her infant son to Postpartum Depression and probably Psychosis. This hike and fundraiser will be in her honor. I want to raise awareness of maternal mental illnesses and remove the stigma so mamas don't feel ashamed or scared to get help. On June 18th, we will hike together and hopefully moms out there will know they are not alone. The hike will be at the Salmon Creek Greenway Trail, meeting at the West side of the parking lot for Klineline park. Start of the event is 10am.
If you are a mom or someone that supports a mom that has struggled with a maternal mental illness, please consider joining the hike, donating to the fundraiser or both! Come honor all the moms out there that have struggled with any mental illness from anxiety, OCD, depression, to psychosis. Let them know they are not alone! The proceeds of the fundraiser will be supporting Postpartum Progress, (postpartumprogress.org), which works very hard to raise awareness and help mamas out. Signing up for the hike is free, but if you want join my team and help raise money even better! The more we get the word out there the more moms we can help. Thanks!
