Many thanks to all you who came out and supported the 2013 Chicago Promise Walk and 5K Run! The more than 330 people registered raised nearly $30,000 to support the Preeclampsia Foundation.
Want to know that that means?
With that money, the Foundation can:
- Fund an entire Vision Grant to help catalyze new preeclampsia research ideas
- Adopt one "sister Site" in a developing country to support care practice improvements
- Provide registry bio-specimens bank storage and access for one full year
- Provide data analysis and reporting from 25 preeclampsia cases with adverse outcomes to improve patient safety and care practices
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Our deep gratitude also goes out to our survivor emcee, Anita Padilla of the FOX Chicago Morning News Team for leading us through the event and providing an insightful and informative interview with Dr. Barbara Parilla, Clinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at UIC and Director of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital.
