This is the message that first time coordinator Stacy Vallely hopes participants will come away with from the second annual Boston Promise Walk for Preeclampsia.
Stacy was a participant in last year’s Promise Walk for Preeclampsia after her son spent 86 days in the NICU when Stacy developed preeclampsia at 28 weeks. He was just 2 lbs and 2 oz at birth. Stacy was moved by the other survivors she heard from that day, the knowledge she gained from an expert at the event and touched by the beauty of the butterfly release.
This year, as coordinator, she hopes the activities and tone of the day are uplifting and inspire others to take on the fight against preeclampsia. Events at the May 6th Boston Promise Walk include speakers, a moment to remember those lost and survivors, children’s games led by the Life is Good Playmakers, a raffle, face painting and more!
To register for the walk, which is at Castle Island Park, go to www.promisewalk.org/boston. Registration is $20 for adults and $10 for children. Registration the day of the walk increases to $25 for adults. For more information, contact Stacy Vallely at firstname.lastname@example.org.
