Hi Friends and Family,

During the month of May I will go the distance to honor my sisters, Lisa and Susanne and break the silence of mental illness. Please challenge me through the month of May and support each mile of mine with $1 (on average I run about 25 miles a week). Every dollar raised will help our families who connect with the essential services of the Postpartum Resource Center of NY. The need for these lifesaving services to moms and families is greater than ever as this year together our nation helps to protect our physical health, we also need to protect those who find themselves worried, anxious, depressed, isolated and alone. In fact, there has been a 50% increase in calls to the Postpartum Resource Center of NY helpline due to COVID-19.

The more we talk about mental health, the more we reach out to those in need, the more we actually connect those in need with essential services, the more we break the silence then the more lives we save. Listen when I say, no one ever wants to live with the question "what if?".

I truly wish I did not have to tell my sisters' stories in hope to save others. I wish they could have continued to share their own stories of hope and continue to save others through their strength and energy. I wish that with all of the knowledge and education I had that I do not have to think each day, "what if?" and could call my sisters again to ask "are you okay?"  Instead, each day I try to learn from Lisa and Susanne with the hope to help other families and connect them to essential services so they would never have to know the feeling of losing a sister, brother, parent, friend or child to mental illness.

So this May I will go the distance to connect our loved ones to essential services.  Please support my miles this May - each dollar raised will connect our families with essential services of the Postpartum Resource Center of NY - each dollar can save the lives of our loved ones. Just think - could your participation in this challenge, you speaking of this Sounds of Silence challenge, you speaking of mental illness and you asking that one friend "are you okay" and then connecting them to essential services COULD save a life and break the silence of our loved ones suffering.

Take Care of you -

Erin

Erin, you a a true inspiration. I am a believer that your girls were with you every step of the way. I don’t need to tell you how my Lisa meant to me. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of her. I miss her smile and that contagious laugh. I know that she is in a much better place and watching over us with Papa Tom and Suzanne. Love to all the Reilly’s always. And I await the “live” walk next Moth
