Here's what we came up with so far:
- We like the basic “__th Annual Preeclampsia Walk”
- or with the HELLP combo, maybe “HELLP Prevent Preeclampsia: Walk for a Cure”
- I also like the idea of using the statistics (like 1 in 12 pregnancies, or # of deaths either worldwide or in the U.S. over a year or past X years) in either the name or somewhere else on the posters/shirts. People I talk to are almost always surprised to hear how many pregnancies preeclampsia affects, and the numbers seem to have an impact. I'm having trouble thinking of other ways to work them into the name (unless maybe "1 in 12: The __th Annual Preeclampsia Walk" or something like that?). Maybe the walk info could lead with a couple of attention grabbing facts/numbers, followed by a basic title?

Will keep trying to think of others!

Here are the suggestions that have come in recently from family, friends and the CA members:

(FOOT PRINTS)WE WALK(FOOT PRINTS)
TO REMEMBER THOSE LOST
TO SAVE THOSE YET BORN


Big steps for baby steps.

Miracle Babies

Tiny Steps, Big Differences or Tiny Steps Make Big Differences

Steps Against Preeclampsia

HELLP for Pre-E (since HELLP and Pre-E are dual causes)

Pumped for Pre-e (or Preeclampsia)

Don't wanna see Pre-E

Swift Preeclamsia Survivors

Stomp out Preeclampsia (two suggestions from two different people)

Curing Preeclampsia…one step at a time

My thoughts are this. Most everyone I tell my Preeclampsia story to has no idea what it is. Including women how are pregnant or already had a baby. When a T-shirt says "Race for the cure" you immediately think "cure for what"? Or "Taking steps to raise awareness"..awareness of what? It's not about the walk it's about getting people to understand that PE is out there and killing women. So why not just beg people to research it....?

So how about "You Can't Prevent Preeclampsia" Now doesn't that make you want to google it?
