The Promise Walk
We ran 4k and raised $770! (E had a great time. I promise.)
One of the goals on my 40 year bucket list was to Walk in the Promise Walk down in San Diego. There are only two walks in California yearly and this seemed like a good one for a fun family weekend. The Promise Walk support preeclampsia research, education and awareness. Preeclampsia is a disorder present in 5-8% of pregnancies. Normally it is diagnosed through the presence of protein in the urine or elevated blood pressure. It is one of the leading causes of premature birth. You can read about my journey here. My next step will be to join the Preeclampsia Registry and next year do a virtual walk locally here with others who have had the disorder. For more information, you can visit the Preeclampsia Foundation website or watch their 3 minute video. Thank you for all the support through comments, questions and money donated!
