Hundreds gather for Daniel Island Moms' Run!
The 16th Annual Moms’ Run on May 11 celebrated mothers while raising awareness for postpartum depression and anxiety. More than 700 registrants took part in the Mother’s Day weekend event, which raised over $36,000 for Postpartum Support Charleston. All of the funding generated will go directly back to the community providing support and resources for moms.
“We love having our event on the island and appreciate all the support!” said Elaine DeaKyne, executive director of Postpartum Support Charleston.
According to a press release, close to 20 percent of new moms will experience postpartum depression, anxiety or OCD.
