For the second year in a row, I photographed The Promise Walk for Preeclampsia held at Oak Ridge Park in Clark, NJ. After photographing last year’s event, I heard from numerous friends and client Moms that had also been impacted by Preeclampsia during pregnancy. And while many of the stories I heard do have happy endings, unfortunately there are still too many that do not.
The Promise Walk for Preeclampsia – Cranford supports The Preeclampsia Foundation, and their mission to provide patient support and education, raise public awareness, catalyze research and improve healthcare practices. This organization holds a special place in my heart for the help they have provided to dear friends, and so I continue to support and contribute to this organization and donate my time to their events.
Thankfully, the sun was out this year for our event organizers, volunteers and walkers, and it was another amazing day! Once again, I met a ton of wonderful people as well as reconnected with good friends.
I created this slideshow with my favorite images from the day and shared it with the race organizers. I invite you to take a couple of minutes to watch the slideshow, but I also ask that you take some time to learn more about Preeclampsia and its symptoms from the Preeclampsia Foundation.
The Promise Walk for Preeclampsia – Cranford has raised over $32,000 for this cause, with donations still accepted through August. If you would like to donate, you can do so by clicking here. Thank you for your time.
