PHILADELPHIA'S TEAM PAGE
Welcome to the Climb Out of The Darkness 2019- Philadelphia team fundraising page.
Climb out of the Darkness is an annual, international fundraiser for Postpartum Support International.
Climb out of the Darkness is committed to bringing people together, united, to honor the struggle to overcome PMADS (perinatal mood and anxiety disorders). We promote awarness, prevention, and treatment of mental health issues related to childbearing in every country worldwide. We support moms & dads, community programs and healthcare providers.
This is our FIRST year of the CLIMB here in Philly and we hope to bring in even more people and support!!! We are raising money to benefit Postpartum Support International, The UNC Center for Women's Mood Disorders, and The Alexis Joy D'Achille Foundation. When you help us raise $100 to support these groups by September 8th, you will earn an awesome Climb t-shirt!
We are mothers, survivors, supporters, and providers climbing together to let all moms and dads know: YOU ARE NOT ALONE. YOU ARE NOT TO BLAME. WITH HELP, YOU WILL BE WELL.
Join the team and raise money and awareness!
