Veteran Walk Gets It… in Ink!

March 14, 2012

Survivors at the 2011 Lehigh Valley Promise Walk

The Lehigh Valley Promise Walk for Preeclampsia is one of our veteran walks having been around since 2005.   Over the years, they’ve grown from a smaller “friends and family” walk into the full-fledged public Promise Walk they are today.

Coordinator Dawn Detweiler has much to be excited about for this 2012 Promise Walk, including two walkers who plan to permanently tattoo the Promise Walk awareness ribbon on their bodies!  The tattoo artist is the husband of one of the participants, and will be offering the ribbon tattoo to the public with proceeds going to the Preeclampsia Foundation.  What a lasting way to show your dedication to eradicating preeclampsia—inking it!

If you’d like to make a less permanent, yet just as meaningful display of support, perhaps joining the Lehigh Valley Promise Walk is just the key.  You’ll be able to enjoy a playground party complete with clown and animal balloons, a raffle, silent auction and goody bags.  Goody bags are limited so be sure to register early!

This year’s walk will be held at Forks Township Community Center on Saturday, May 5th.  In addition to the fun activities, those present will hear expert and survivor speeches, receive valuable information and gain support from the community of preeclampsia survivors gathered that day.

Go now to www.promisewalk.org/lehighvalley to register.  Registration is $20 for adults and $10 for children.  Walk-up registration on the day of the event is $25.  For more information, contact dawn.detweiler@preeclampsia.org.

Remember – May 5th.  Make sure you get it on your calendar… in ink!
