Just a Walk in the Park…

June 3, 2011

First time coordinators Kellie Beadle and Jessica Sobat along with Tina Murphy, Susan Steele, Brenda Sobat and Jeri Hoag are looking forward to a beautiful day in the park this Saturday.  The Promise Walk rolls into Indianapolis and looks to be a shining success.

Complete with a raffle, silent auction and prizes for various fundraisers, these ladies have it all under control.  You can pick up items from sports memorabilia to massage gift certificates—all among a truly tranquil setting at the Ft. Benjamin Harrison State Park.

Like many, Kellie and Jessica took on the role of walk coordinators after very personal experiences with preeclampsia.  Kellie suffered from post-partum preeclampsia after the birth of her first and only daughter.  Post-partum preeclampsia may be responsible for nearly 80% of the maternal deaths from the disease.

Jessica developed preeclampsia at 32 weeks, hospitalized on bed rest and then forced to deliver six days later.   Both Jessica and her son made it through their ordeal, but it spurred Jessica to action.

There is still time to join Kellie and Jessica in their quest to bring awareness of preeclampsia to those in the Indianapolis area.  Go to http://www.promisewalk.org/pfpw/fundevent.asp?nnaffundid=30 and click to register or donate.

Come take a stroll around the lake…you can even decorate your stroller and show off your creative talents in the Stroller Decorating Contest!  See you Saturday, June 6th in Indianapolis!
