BENEFITING: HYPEREMESIS EDUCATION & RESEARCH FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: May 20, 2017
Honor a TougHGirl and support HER Foundation Awareness Events by coordinating a team for the HER Purple Bucket Run (5K & 1 mile fun run) on May 20, 2017 in Chicago or run virtually. You can also fundraise for vital HER Foundation research and education projects. All proceeds from the race are given to the HER Foundation.
With the help of donors and volunteers, HER improves the health and future of many women and babies around the world! Lives are actually saved as women are able to survive their pregnancies. HER provides support and advocacy for 1000's of women, and is the #1 source of information and research on HG. Last year, HER collaborated with leading universities in the US and Australia to publish the first genetic study on HG as well as other important studies on the impact and management of HG. Grants are rarely given for HG research so most studies are solely donor-funded. We need your help because we need answers!
Join #TeamHER to be part of our life-saving mission to help mothers and babies survive HG!*
TougHGirls are women who experienced HG.
*HG is a debilitating and potentially life-threatening pregnancy disease marked by rapid weight loss, malnutrition, and dehydration due to unrelenting nausea and/or vomiting with potential adverse consequences for the mom-to-be and the newborn(s). www.HelpHER.org
