Butterfly KissesApril 20, 2012
Autumn Spear may be a first time walk coordinator, but she’s no stranger to the Promise Walk for Preeclampsia. Autumn attended her first walk in 2008, seven weeks after her daughter was born still due to preeclampsia that struck at 22 weeks into her pregnancy.
After a few years of joining the San Diego walk each year, Autumn has taken on a walk of her own in Seattle, WA. The first annual Seattle Promise Walk for Preeclampsia will take place on May 12th at Marymoor Park in Redmond, WA.
Much of the format of the Seattle walk will follow what Autumn has come to know and appreciate at the San Diego event. In fact, one of Autumn’s favorite memories from years past is the butterfly release done in 2011. It’s at this moment in the day that everyone pauses to think of those we’ve lost to preeclampsia and those who have thankfully survived.
Along with a moment to honor survivors and remember the victims, Seattle will host children’s activities, a silent auction and Dr. Thomas Easterling will speak.
In order to register and attend the Seattle Promise Walk for Preeclampsia, go to www.promisewalk.org/seattle. Cost is $20 for adults and $10 for children. For more information contact Autumn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
