All Because of Chase…

February 28, 2011

Leanne Parke began the Raleigh Promise Walk for Preeclampsia last year.  She felt a calling to bring awareness of the disease and to search for a cause and a cure after having it threaten her own life, her daughter’s and after it did take the life of her son, Chase.

Working to create a legacy for Chase was a major motivation for Leanne.  Last year, her passion paid off with more than $5000 in funds raised and awareness brought to the more than 75 people in attendance.  Hoping to make 2011 an even bigger success, Leanne has called on her family and friends to bring Raleigh out in masses.

This year’s event will include speakers, a silent auction and kids’ activities.  Walkers can also choose between a 2 mile walk or a 5K walk/run.  There’s so much to choose from and so much to gain from attending this local walk!

Should you be in the Raleigh area on Saturday, May 7th please join Leanne and her efforts.  Registration for the Raleigh Promise Walk is now open.  Go to http://www.promisewalk.org/pfpw/fundevent.asp?nnaffundid=21 to register or donate now.
