You Can Do It

 

The first annual Stroll n Run 5K is MORE than just a race. In conjunction with other events during Perinatal Depression Awareness Month, the Stroll n Run is a great way to gets moms outside and moving together with their families.

From Rachel, co-founder of Club MomME:

“After I had my second baby last year, I really struggled with post-partum (depression) and getting back in shape was the last thing on my mind. I have always been in to fitness and eating well, and for the first time in my life, I just didn’t care. About anything, but especially working out. And it was hard to find ANY me time.

As I started to feel better and my daughter approached the one-year mark, I decided to create a family-friendly fitness event for busy moms who struggle finding “me” time (or feel guilty spending time away from kids working out). One of the best things we can all do for our kids is to take very good care of ourselves. And doing so sets a great example for them too!”

Climb Out of the Darkness is the world’s largest event raising awareness of postpartum depression, anxiety, PTSD, psychosis, and pregnancy (perinatal) depression. The event was created by and benefits Postpartum Progress Inc., a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization that raises awareness and supports pregnant and new moms with these illnesses. For each runner or walker in the Stroll n Run 5K, $5 will be donated to Postpartum Progress Inc.
