This was the first yeart for a walk in Dallas and I think it went great. We had about 65 walkers participate and we have cleared $2,532.50 with still a few more donations trickling in. We had 8 people sign up for the genetic study.

There is eagerness to continue with more events in the area and I think we are off to a great start.

Nicole,
Thanks again for all of your hard work! I totally forgot to sign up for the study, is there some other way I can do it? Also, is there a way to know who donated online? I do not know who did but would like to be able to thank them.

Thanks Jamie - I'll email you the donations! You had a big workout pulling the girls in the wagon up those hills. I had a great time and loved watching the kiddos play.

Our goal is to make the walk bigger every year and we did that!

2009 - 125 walkers - $13,125 raised (our only costs are t-shirts)
2008 - 100 walkers - $8,000 raised
2007 - 75 walkers - $5,000 raised

You can still donate to the 2009 SD walk if you haven't had a chance:

Great job San Diego; Thank You to our sponsors, volunteers, online donors and walkers.

Alicia will post the walk montage soon.

I will continue to check email if anyone has questions, ideas or sponsors for next year's walk, or needs assistance:
SanDiego@preeclampsia.org

Thank you for another successful walk, Alicia...my PE Sister!
