2016 Official Team T-Shirt Available to Order

January 27, 2016


As part of the changes we are making in 2016, the Preeclampsia Foundation is now making an official 2016 Promise Walk Team T-Shirt available for purchase by our Team Captains! Not only will your team now get more choice of sizes (including ladies’ fit) and colors, the new program means that you can have your team’s name customized in the font of your choice on the back of the shirt. What a great way to show your Promise Walk team spirit!


Even better, the shirts will be shipped to you in advance of the walk, so you can start much earlier in showing off proudly what an important part of our mission you are! Orders and payment must be finalized to HeadsUp Apparel 4 weeks before your walk event date to ensure production and shipping time.

Big changes in 2016: No more registration fee!

January 5, 2016

1270482_806846229328426_8278828452109080009_oThe 2016 Promise Walk for Preeclampsia season is officially kicked off and our volunteers and supporters are already hard at work to hit our $550,000 goal! We have over 40 amazing sites where you can come together with other families who care about moms and babies to “Make Strides and Deliver Hope.”

The BIG change in 2016 is that we have completely done away with registration fees for our Promise Walk events. The Preeclampsia Foundation wants there to be no barriers for anyone to come raise awareness and funds for a great cause. This year, let’s make record numbers in participation and fundraising!

We are asking that you:

  1. Register early at www.promisewalk.org (No event near you? Form a virtual team!)
  2. Customize your individual and team donation pages with your story.
  3. Make a meaningful gift to your own team.
  4. Ask friends and family to make a donation to you and your team.
  5. Show off your status as a VIP supporter through our awesome incentive items!

To get you started, here’s a Team Captain’s Welcome Guide with great tips on how to become the best team in the nation! Start your team today.

The Promise Walk is an awareness-raising fundraiser, and the dollars you help to bring in are the means by which we make a difference in the lives of moms, dads, babies and the families that are affected by hypertension in pregnancy. Our end goal? A world where preeclampsia no longer threatens the lives of moms and babies. For more details on how your donation dollars are used, you can visit the Preeclampsia Foundation’s Finance page.

*Note: some Promise Walk for Preeclampsia events also have certified 5K runs scheduled on the same day and location. A minimal registration fee is required for all participants to sign up for events that include a 5K run.

5 Programs You Funded Through Promise Walk Giving

July 27, 2015

We’re nearing the end of our 2015 Promise Walk for Preeclampsia season so let’s take the time to celebrate all that we’ve accomplished. With only $10,000 left to hit our national goal (you can still donate at www.promisewalk.org), it gives us a great time to reflect on exactly what $490,000+ accomplishes in our mission. Here are just a few programs that would not happen without the funds raised by the Promise Walk:


(1) The Continuum of Care Healthcare Provider Outreach program. Our staff travels across the United States to meet with thousands of doctors, nurses, midwives, doulas, childbirth educators, and other allied healthcare providers to provide lifesaving, low-cost education materials. Not only does this program help educate providers about the importance of educating patients, it raises vital awareness of the Foundation and its services. Read the rest of this entry »
