Wanted to give you all an update on how things are going with the walk. Right now we are expecting between 40 and 50 walkers with about 35 already registered. On Sunday May 1 we are holding a brat fry here in town at one of the major grocery stores. I am still waiting to hear from the govenors wife as to whether or not she will be here. I have had a lot of support from family and friends and can't wait for the walk to come to see how everything works out. The businesses in town are a little leary about the walk, I am guessing since it is the first year and many of them haven't heard about preeclampsia before they are hesitant to donate anything. Hopefully next year they will be more ready to pitch in with donations and spreading the word. We got an article in the newspaper and there will be an article on my motherhood experience with a mention of the walk a thon in the county magazine for their May issue which I am looking forward to seeing. Just wanted to let you all know how things are going here in Wisconsin.
