The HER Foundation has struggled mightily with the decision to take a year off from the HER5K. For 2015, we want to take the time to simply focus on the mission and vision of the Foundation and we need to raise more funds in order to make the race happen!
The HER Foundation relies 100% on donations, as it receives no private or government funding. This year we plan to focus more on educating the medical community by attending medical conferences that include nurses, midwives, nutritionists, and OBGYNs who need to hear our plea of better healthcare for HG women. This is one of the most important reasons the HER Foundation exists . . . to make sure your stories and your voices are heard by us speaking up for you. The medical community must understand that better healthcare is crucial for HG women.
As we look forward to sponsoring the race again in 2016, we want the many of you who have attended and supported the event in the past to know that 100% of whatever you choose to contribute will directly support our charitable endeavors. We hope you will join us next year and want to once again thank you for your continued support, dedication and friendship over the years!
That said, don’t forget that MAY 15TH is the annual HG Awareness Day. We are in the process of putting together “HG Meet up Groups” around the globe. On the weekend of May 15th, women can find a nearby group to meet and discuss all things HG or just simply enjoy each others company while hopefully having a fantastic meal, which we all miss so much during our HG pregnancies. We hope you will share your photos on our Facebook page and appreciate all the fundraising you do as well.
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU IN DC FOR THE 2016 HER5K!
