Welcome to the Climb Out of the Darkness 2019 - Erie 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 awareness, 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 second year of the CLIMB here in Erie and we hope to bring in even more people and support! We’re raising money to benefit Postpartum Support International and a to help local mothers who are in need by offering meals and other neccessities during difficult postpartum times.
We are mothers, survivors, supporters, and providers, climbing together to let all moms know: You are not alone. You are not to blame. With help, you will be well.
Join the team and raise money and awareness!
We would like to thank our sponsor Erie News Now!
Also, thank you to everyone who donated items for the raffle, items for Climb day, monetary donations, and volunteers! This is all possible because of your support. Many women and families will be able to get the help and support they need because of your kindness.
