We will be "climbing" on Sunday, July 9, 2017. Meet at 9am at the corner of Kahle Dr. and Hwy 50 to walk through the Kahle meadow to the Nevada Beach picnic pavilion. The walk is stroller-friendly, flat, and only 1.4miles.
We will have an after-party at the pavilion, with food, a silent auction, yoga on the beach, kids activities, and socializing. This is FAMILY-FRIENDLY EVENT! Bring the hubbies, bring the kids. If you can't do the walk, feel free to join us at the picnic pavilion at 10am for the afterparty.
Many thanks to Barton Health and Elevate Wellness Center for sponsoring our event! Many other local businesses have also donated goods and services for our raffle.
Climb Out of the Darkness® is the world’s largest event raising awareness of maternal mental illnesses like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety & OCD, postpartum PTSD, postpartum psychosis, bipolar/peripartum onset, and pregnancy depression and anxiety. Climb Out of the Darkness® is held on or near the longest day of the year annually to help shine the most light on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. The event features mothers and others across the globe joining together to climb mountains and hike trails to represent their symbolic rise out of the darkness of maternal mental illness and into the light of hope and recovery. Mark your calendars! Help us shine the light of hope with our words and our advocacy efforts so that our fellow mothers will receive better information and better treatment, and their new families will get off to the healthy and strong start they deserve.
