11th Annual Sounds of Silence 5k/10k Run (Walk, Stroller-walk with Kid's Fun Run)

Campaign Title

This is our story and why we need your help.

My sister Lisa Mary suffered from pregnancy and postpartum depression during and after the birth of my niece. During her struggle with this illness, I saw first hand the deep emotional pain and suffering that postpartum depression causes moms and their loved ones. I also witnessed the terrible stigma this illness brings upon moms and the suffering in silence they feel forced to endure.

It was an experience that I didn’t want other moms, dads and families to go through.

So, I decided that I would make a pact – a pact with my sister and my niece too – a promise to break the silence of postpartum depression, celebrate our courageous mothers and fathers, and build sounds of hope for all those families who may be suffering.

That’s how the  Sounds of Silence, Friends of the Postpartum Resource Center of New York was born.

The Sounds of Silence 5K/10K Run (Walk, Stroller-walk with Kid's Fun Run) in Memory and Celebration of Lisa Mary Reilly is an annual event now in its eleventh year. The goal of this event is to raise awareness for pregnancy and postpartum depression/anxiety and to raise funds for the essential programs and services of the Postpartum Resource Center of New York.

A special focus of this event is supporting the Lisa Mary Reilly Visioning Educational Series, which is part of Project 62™- Building and Strengthening Perinatal Mental Wellness Parent Support Networks and Safety Nets in all sixty-two New York State counties.

Now you can be part of this important cause.

Join us in helping to raise funds for the 11th Annual Sounds of Silence Run event. Become a fundraiser in an event that benefits the moms, dads, and families in your community.

Awards for Top Fundraiser and Top Team Fundraiser!

The Sounds of Silence, Friends of the Postpartum Resource Center of New York is a fundraising committee of the PRCNY. All proceeds contributed support the essential programs and services of the Postpartum Resource Center of New York, Inc., a 501(c)(3) IRS recognized non-profit organization. Tax ID# 11-3449880.

Any payment by check should be made payable to: Postpartum Resource Center of New York.

Sincerely yours,

Erin Mascaro
