Hoboken Climb Out Of The Darkness - June 28, 2014
Friday, May 2, 2014
From Lesley's CrowdRise page:
"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.
"In Hoboken on Saturday, June 28th, at 11AM, we will be gathering at Maxwell Place Park, and taking a brisk walk (feel free to jog - the six-months-pregnant woman will be "briskly" walking) down to Pier A and back up, for a picnic lunch. Bring friends, family, kiddos, dogs - everyone is welcome! There is a playground where we will be starting / ending, and a dog run, and a kickass view of NYC.
"Whether you can join us or not, please do help us raise money so that Postpartum Progress 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."
