Boston Marathon Runner champions for the Preeclampsia Foundation with matching gifts from rEVO Biologics


This year, during her sixth Boston Marathon on April 18, Foundation supporter Wendy Kendrick will use the pleasure she gets from running to contribute to a good cause: by raising money for the Preeclampsia Foundation. Wendy is a Project Manager at Framingham-based LFB USA, a sister company of rEVO Biologics. rEVO Biologics, a proud supporter of the Preeclampsia Foundation's mission, has agreed to match each dollar donated to Wendy's fundraising efforts.

Be a jewel for moms and babies with the GEMs Program

Be a G.E.M. and give monthly to save the lives of moms and babies. For example, a  gift of $10 a month provides preeclampsia educational materials to 20 women. 

Set up a recurring donation of any amount to be drawn from your bank account or to be paid with a credit card.  Regular giving helps us be more effective as an organization and helps you increase your impact on the mission.

We hope that you become a hero to 240 (or more!) women and their families a year.
