As part of our NYC Dads Care program of volunteer activities that promote our core beliefs and values, we’re excited to announce we have a team of NYC Dads Group members and their families that will participate in The Promise Walk for Preeclampsia in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Saturday, June 22.
Never heard of preeclampsia before?
We walk to raise awareness …
Too few know the reality and impact of preeclampsia, a life-threatening disorder of pregnancy that affects both the mother and the unborn baby. Yet preeclampsia is not rare: It happens in as many as one in 12 pregnancies. And any woman can be affected, regardless of her race, ethnic background, skin color, size, hometown, or whether she is rich, poor, or somewhere in the middle. Even good health and healthy habits aren’t a guarantee of protection against this disorder.
