It's that time of year - time for Pregnancy and Postpartum Support Minnesota's 7th Annual Daisy Dash 5k! Due to COVID-19, this family-friendly event will be virtual this year. It will take place the entire weekend, allowing participants to join at the time that works best for them: Fri, May 29th through Sun, May 31st! Consider inviting someone who would have difficulty physically making it to the event (family or friends from other regions). Participants will receive a bag of items, including a shirt, a bonus item, and giveaways. In most cases, items will be shipped - local pickup may be available depending on PPSM volunteer abilities.
All proceeds go directly to the organization to provide support, advocacy, awareness, and training about perinatal mental health in Minnesota. PPSM is a volunteer-run organization, and depend on the generosity of donors to achieve their goals towards support and advocating for parents, and educating professionals that work with new and expectant parents & families.

May is Preeclampsia Awareness Month...
...as well as being the month where all of us celebrate the many maternal figures that have positively impacted our lives. Preeclampsia Awareness Month has always been about more than raising a banner or hosting a single event. Preeclampsia Awareness month is about taking action on behalf of a greater family: the global community of women and their families.
Visit Preeclampsia Foundation for more information about their work and what you can do as a healthcare provider, patient or family member, or in your community.
