Please Support My Fundraising Efforts

Support me as I challenge myself to raise awareness and educate teens about depression. I have struggled with depression since I was a teen, and wish I had access then to the resources and support that Erika's Lighthouse provides. Running truly helps me cope with my depression and now anxiety that I've developed the past several years, and I'm thrilled to run the Chicago Marathon as my 4th marathon! Thank you for your donation, even the smallest amount can potentially save a teen's life.

What is Erika's Lighthouse?

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.

Thank you to my supporters!
