The 140 Over 90 Run is 100% organized and run by volunteers who have a personal connection to the cause and a lifelong dedication to healthful movement.
A wide range of experiences have brought us here as participants and volunteers, but we share common goals: We want to raise awareness about and funds for research into hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, including Preeclampsia, Eclampsia, and HELLP Syndrome. We want to do so in a way that furthers our own healthy movement goals and encourages others to engage in healthy movement; this goal is doubly important as we want to raise awareness of the lifelong increased cardiac risks that survivors face and how exercise can reduce them. If you share these goals and want to get involved, we'd love to hear from you!
If you are viewing on your phone, please peek at our amazing volunteers on your desktop/laptop! The phone app is not capturing everyone and we are working hard on fixing that tech issue!
Passionate. Giving Back. Fun.

Twins plus preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome led to a whirlwind delivery and two healthy NICU babies, but left me confused and scared. Meeting other pree families has been instrumental in my healing, and I love being able to return the favor now.

I was lucky to be born in an era when my particular "perfect storm of complications" were resolvable, when I could return home with my son and begin the long road to recovery together. But our story is far from perfect; there's a huge list of things I wish had been done differently. I run to raise awareness and funds for change.

Using my tragedy of losing my son to Preeclampsia & HELLP Syndrome, to educate others, although painful, it brings me so much joy knowing I could be helping to save someone else's baby! Plus I get to move my body which reminds me of my physical strength!
Slingin' ideas for social media (social media support)
I love this event because when I was diagnosed with preeclamspia at 37 weeks. Suddenly I didn’t know anything. I found this group of ladies and learned so much .To help (myself and) my daughter who I had preeclamspia with.

As a postpartum preeclampsia survivor and first time mom, the 140 Over 90 Run has been an empowering experience to create meaning out of the unexpected and prioritize my health.

I developed preeclampsia/HELLP at 31 weeks which led to the emergency delivery of our sweet miracle girl. I love supporting this event to raise awareness and fund more research!
HELLP tried to take my life, instead it made me stronger!
You will find Jessica in the Mama Miles Facebook group and happy to bring her energy to help us all focus on our goals and support each other!
When she's not crafting, she is crafting up posts in the Mama Miles Group!
Finding the 140/90 Run after surviving preeclampsia at 33 weeks, brought me connection and purpose. I'm looking forward to my 3rd year of participating and helping support others in the Mama Miles Group.
Our Swag Lead
Ever since being diagnosed with preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome in my last two pregnancies I have loved giving back to other NICU families, and commiserating with other moms who have had to experience this awful disease. I love being apart of the 140/90 family and what it stands for!
