Team Resilience 2022

Dana Allen Walsh

The most important thing I've learned from running long distances -- I could never do it alone.

As a pastor, I have witnessed the struggle of youth with mental health. Many feel that depression and anxiety is something that needs to be hidden. But the more we create space for honesty and awareness, the healthier our teens (and all of us) will be. Through all the training runs (and the heat!) I could not have gotten to Chicago on my own. We need encouragement and strength when things get uncomfortable and even unbearable at times. We need each other. Thank you for your support!

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.
