Amanda addresses the crowd at last year’s Promise Walk for Preeclampsia in Denver

Third-time coordinator Amanda Meier along with first time co-coordinator Melissa Heideman are looking to restore the Denver Promise Walk for Preeclampsia to the polished shine it had its first year in 2011.

The duo are hoping that 225 people will join them this year in raising at least $15,000 and bringing awareness and support to countless others in the Denver area.  Under the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, this year’s walk will take place May 5th at Denver City Park.  The large city park will host the walk which includes a 1.5 mile walk, 2 mile fun run, children’s relay and other kids’ activities.

Amanda hopes that the walk will help educate people on the signs and symptoms of preeclampsia, a disease she hadn’t heard of until she herself was diagnosed with preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome.  It was her personal experience that led her to bring the Promise Walk to Denver three years ago. Melissa joined Amanda’s volunteer team last year, representing the cause as Mrs. Colorado International to spread awareness about the condition. She is a two-time preeclampsia survivor.
