Hiking out of the darkness

I can’t believe it’s been over a week since the wonderful Climb Out of the Darkness event on June 24, 2017.  This fundraiser is the largest event to bring awareness to Perinatal Mental Health and benefits Postpartum Support International.  As part of the PSI-Connecticut team, I hiked up to the top of Heublien Tower in Simsbury, CT.  We had a modest but enthusiastic turnout and ended up being the second largest fundraising team in the country!  It was so inspiring and wonderful to be with the women, men and children who joined out team.  With everyone hiking at their own paces there was plenty of time to have smaller conversations and opportunities for some group pictures.  Our hikers found inspiration for their involvement both from personal experiences as well as the experiences of friends, family and clients whom they work with or support in their own climb out of this darkness.  Already looking forward to next year’s hike!
