Twas the Night Before the Promise Walk – A Repost

December 24, 2010

The last present may have been unwrapped, but we wanted to take this opportunity to repost one of our favorite posts from the past year.  Enjoy and happy holidays to you and your family.  We wish you good health in 2012.


With the season in mind, please enjoy our twist on this holiday favorite.

Twas the night before the Promise Walks and all through the country

Not a coordinator was stirring not even in North Conway.

The t-shirts were folded in boxes with care,

In hope that many walkers soon would be there.

The volunteers were nestled all snug in their beds

While visions of donations danced in their heads.

And Becky in her green shirt and I with my “survivor” button

Were all looking forward to our new Promise Walk fashion.

When all of a sudden my email went bonkers.

I sprang from my chair and screamed “Holy Yonkers!”

Away to my desk I flew like a flash,

Opened up Outlook and almost did gasp!

The lamp on the desk in my bedroom so late

Shone dimly at midnight just what was so great.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear

But a huge new donation and much walker participation.

With a click of my mouse, so happy and quick.

I knew in a moment we’d help mommies not get sick.

More attendance than imagined our walkers they came

We listened and shouted and resolute we became.

Now awareness!

Now research!

Now support and a cure!

Healthy babies! Healthy mommies!

For our sweet boys and girls.

From the tops of our lungs, to everyone everywhere

We thank you! Thank you! Thank you all!

We’ve sprung to our feet, given voice to our cause

But onward we march and during this season we pause.

Our hope is to exclaim standing healthy and tall

Preeclampsia is cured for one and for all!

From the Promise Walk family to yours, a happy and healthy holiday season!
