Preeclampsia Awareness Month Marked By Promise Walks in 36 Cities
Date:4/9/2012

MELBOURNE, Fla., April 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- May is Preeclampsia Awareness Month and to build awareness of preeclampsia, a life-threatening disorder of pregnancy and the post-partum period, thousands of families in 36 cities in the U.S. and Canada are participating in Promise Walks.

The Preeclampsia Foundation is holding the Promise Walk for Preeclampsia™, now in its third year, to help provide patient support and education, raise public awareness, catalyze research and improve health care practices for the millions of mothers and their babies every year who are impacted by preeclampsia and related hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. Last year, Promise Walk events were held in 23 cities and raised more than $250,000.

"Preeclampsia affects one in 12 pregnant women, and the incidence of this puzzling disorder is on the rise," says Eleni Tsigas, Executive Director of the Preeclampsia Foundation. "With our Promise Walks, along with several other educational and awareness-building events throughout the month, we will reach many thousands of people with life-saving information. Expectant mothers who know what to be aware of play a vital role in recognizing preeclampsia symptoms, thus improving time to diagnosis and medical attention."

Promise Walks range from walks to 5k runs. Events in the 36 participating cities may also include guest speakers, appearances by media personalities, free blood pressure screenings, silent auctions, raffles, family activities and memorial events. Visit www.promisewalk.org to register, make a donation or learn more about special events at each of these walks.
