Preeclampsia Awareness Walk-a-thons - Mothers’ Day

Postby tom-pf-exd » Fri Dec 07, 2007 12:10 am

Local Organizers Needed – Make a difference

For the 4th consecutive year, the Preeclampsia Foundation will hold its national “awareness day” walk-a-thons on Saturday, May 10, 2008 (Mothers’ Day weekend). This series of events has quickly grown to be our 2nd largest funding source. If we are to continue growing, funding more research, and disseminating more information to educate more women, we need volunteers to help bring the event to more cities and towns across the country.

If you are interested in organizing a “walk” in your area, please contact me at jtviall.execdir@preeclampsia.org. We will send you a CD with everything you need to know, literally from A to Z, to run a successful event. In addition, we will have monthly conference calls for walk organizers to provide expert support as you move ahead in the planning process.

Please help us reach our goal of at least 30 awareness walk sites in 2008 with a fundraising goal of at least $150,000.

We can make it happen . . . one site at a time!

Tom,

This is so exciting! I don't think we have one in Utah that I am aware of... I would love to do this! Sending you an email...

Wish we could post this in a more visible location... For some reason I seem to bypass this folder. Glad it caught my eye this time...

Thanks, Cindy

Hi Kathleen,

There is a walk in San Diego, CA May 10th... here is the link...

http://www.preeclampsia.org/watinfo.aspx

Even if you can't attend a formal WAT you have the option of a solo walk or family & friends walk too... you'll find all the info you need through the link... I know some people said they didn't want to walk and just made donations... another great way to help fund the cause for a cure :)

You might also want to check out the California bb's too... they have a pretty active group

Hope that helps!
Cindy

Hi Cindy,
Thank you for the information. I believe we've chatted on YouTube...when I clicked your link, I realized we had already started communicating! If you don't mind my newness to this stuff...what is DH, DD, DS? I've noticed that a lot on other individuals signatures.
