Postpartum Progress holds fourth annual Climb Out of the Darkness ® in Fort Wayne to raise awareness of maternal mental health disorders.

Climb Out of the Darkness® is the world’s largest event raising awareness of maternal mental health disorders such as postpartum depression (PPD), anxiety, OCD and psychosis. As part of the Climb, survivors all over the world – dubbed Warrior Moms – climb, hike or walk together at a local mountain or park to symbolize their collective rise out of the darkness as well as to raise funds for Postpartum Progress, a nonprofit organization and online community of support resources for women around the world.

All moms, families and friends are invited to participate in their local Climb Out of the Darkness® to be held at the Circle of Hope Trail in downtown Fort Wayne on June 18 at 2:00PM. Participants must register prior to the event at https://www.crowdrise.com/kaseywallace-COTD2016/fundraiser/kaseywallace. Sponsorships from local businesses are also being accepted. Please contact local Climb Leader, Kasey Wallace, at (260) 267-6566 or COTDFortWayne@gmail.com for more information on sponsorships that will help support the Climb.
