Due to the ongoing public health situation, local Promise Walks are postponing to a later date, moving to a virtual environment, or forgoing a 2020 event. Please check your local walk's webpage and social media for updates. If there is no Promise Walk in your area, please consider joining us for our first national virtual walk - The Promise Walk Wherever.
Thank you for your continued support during these times. You are saving moms and babies!

This year 3946 participants registered, formed 516 teams, and raised more than $422,000. Promise Walk for Preeclampsia ™ supports the purpose of the Preeclampsia Foundation as we educate, support and engage the community, improve healthcare practices, and find a cure.
