Thank you for visiting the Team Happy New Year page! Our team is named for the happy and very lucky new year we experienced 24 years ago. Toward the end of an uneventful pregnancy, Sharon wasn't feeling well, not well at all. She and Alan went to the hospital and were told she had preeclampsia and that she would have a baby today. Neither of us had ever heard of preeclampsia, but we soon learned that it is a leading cause of maternal and infant death. We were very fortunate that we delivered a healthy baby girl with no lasting effects on Alanna or Sharon. Many families are not so lucky. We are committed to doing all that we can to support the Preeclampsia Foundation to accomplish their mission to create more happy birthdays by increasing awareness and supporting research that leads to healthy pregnancies and deliveries.
We hope you will join us in this effort! Here's what you can do.
Just click the "Join Our Team" button and register! Registration to attend the Promise Walk is free to all participants. The walk also includes an auction, snacks and activities for kids as well as a short talk by Dr. Felix Rogers.
All who register as team members--whether you walk or not--are invited to a Pasta Dinner at Alan and Sharon's home on Saturday, June 3 to "bulk up" for the Big Walk on Sunday. It is sure to include good food, good wine and great people. Details about the dinner will be sent to all who sign up to be a member of Team Happy New Year.
We are excited to be part of "making strides and delivering hope" for families affected by preeclampsia, HELLP syndrome and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.
Our team is grateful for your donations and for your help in spreading the word.
