Support My Fundraising Efforts
Erika's Lighthouse is determined to make sure no young person feels alone in their depression. We are dedicated to creating a community of empathy and education. We create middle school and high school teen depression awareness programs so educators and teens can create safe spaces to learn about depression, letting students know they are never alone, and there is somewhere to turn.
Please consider donating to my fundraiser as I train and run a marathon with the hope of bringing a stronger awareness to depression among youth. Many family and friends know I have spent the previous few years in CPS. I am now working directly with teens, most struggling with suicide ideation, as a therapist. Through both careers I have heard the stories of countless teens. There attempts at asking for help in their own ways. The increase in youth depression and suicide since the start of the pandemic. I only hope that funding programs such as those put on through Erika's lighthouse can be that glimmer of hope or that safe place these youth have been yearning for.
