I would like to organize something for the Southern New Jersey area.

Any word on when we can get some guidance/brochures/information. I've never done anything like this before.

Ladies in Philadelphia/Pottstown, maybe all three of us could advertise together so all those within our demographic could go to the closest location (I'm about 20 minutes into NJ from Center City, Philadelphia).

It is never too small! Even 10 people will make it a success. If you are willing to coordinate it - we will provide you with as much support as possible. Just post your name on this link to make it official!


Thank you!

Carol-
My husband and I both will walk in Ann Arbor - Perhaps we should start a thread in the Michigan area for the walk? We're more than willing to help with whatever you need help with!

CarolH - I just emailed you, but I thought I'd also post on here, I'd love to help out with your Ann Arbor, MI walk (and count on me bringing at least 10 other participants). I'm in Fraser so anything I can do remotly would be great. Let me know!

Hi!

I will begin planning in Pottsgrove/Pottstown, Pennsylvania
I am so excited about this idea....

JoAnne-
I see you are planning near Phila too. My daughter was born at Hahnemann Univ. Hospital ! Anyway, I am further from KOPrussia more toward Reading, PA. But if there is a way we can benefit by advertising together (or anything else) feel free to be in touch with me.

Eleni,
You of all people certainly do NOT have the extra time to squeeze to get the San Diego effort off the ground, with everything else you're doing for it on a nationwide level. Thrilled you'll be out there walking.

In addition to myself and yourself, I see potentially 4 others who could be up for walking, and we can also ask Leah to get in touch w/the HELLP Syndrome survivors to ask if they'd walk...

I think we can gather up a good turnout for SD, yet we need someone who will not be newly postpartum or already playing a huge role in the event to help coordinate it in SD...

C'mon San Diego!!
