Space Coast Promise Walk a success


Mission mother Lisa Suttles, center, leads the charge of more than 100 participants at the Space Coast Promise Walk for Preeclampsia held Saturday, May 7 at The Avenue Viera.

The Promise Walk is the signature awareness and fundraising event of the Brevard-based Preeclampsia Foundation to support its mission of saving the lives of mothers and their babies impacted by preeclampsia and related hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.

The walk raised nearly $7,000 and was one of 40 events held across the country to build awareness of this life-threatening disorder of pregnancy and the postpartum period.
