2017 Promise Walk for Preeclampsia Canada
Preeclampsia Foundation Canada
THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR GENEROUS PARTICIPANTS, SPONSORS AND DONORS FOR MAKING OUR FIRST INAUGURAL Promise Walks for Preeclampsia IN CANADA A HUGE SUCCESS!
The Promise Walk for Preeclampsia™ is the single most important fundraising initiative for Preeclampsia Foundation Canada that supports our mission to reduce maternal and infant illness and death due to preeclampsia, HELLP Syndrome and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy through patient education, public awareness and research.
These walks are more than a fundraiser; they are events that bring together a community of people who have been affected by these disorders, to make connections, and to demonstrate the support of donors, sponsors, local media, community partners, and corporate sponsors, so those affected know they are not alone. It is also a place to honour those we have lost and to make a real stride towards ending preeclampsia!
We are thrilled to be hosting our first annual Promise Walk for Preeclampsia Canada in 2017! The Promise Walk for Preeclampsia began in 2004 by our sister organization, the Preeclampsia Foundation. It has raised over $1.8 million dollars to fund research and improve health care practices globally.
Preeclampsia affects 5-8% of all pregnancies and approximately 10 million mothers will develop preeclampsia across the world each year, yet according to the World Health Organization (WHO), preeclampsia is one of the least funded areas of research. We need your help to realize our vision of a world where preeclampsia no longer threatens the lives of mothers and babies. Please join us!
