Miles for Mommies Memorial / Awareness Walk is a walk or run in memoriam of Lacie (Cole) Ring who was a mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend, teacher, coach, co-worker, and heart sister and who passed away unexpectedly after battling a condition called Peripartum Cardiomyopathy (PPCM), a type of heart failure that is brought on by pregnancy.
Lacie’s mission was to raise awareness for PPCM so that no mamas that are experiencing symptoms are pushed aside and that their heart failure is recognized before it is too late and to make sure all expecting mamas, their families, the public, and medical communities were educated and aware of their symptoms and felt empowered to advocate for themselves and their families. She became the Alabama Representative for The Save the Mommies organization after she was diagnosed.
She was a brave fighter and was fighting for the lives of every expecting mama and baby, including her own. Her loved ones will always remember her as a selfless, compassionate, bold, funny and a brave woman. She loved life and she was a bright light who brought joy and laughter to everyone she met.
Her memory will live on forever.
To raise awareness for a Peripartum Cardiomyopathy (PPCM) condition you can join for a walk in person (9:00 am – 11:00 am) or virtually through a 1 mile walk or 5K run at any time on Saturday, May 8th.
If able, take some pictures on your walk or run with your Miles for Mommies t-shirt and upload it to your social media pages using hashtags #MilesforMommies and #LiveLikeLacie. T-shirts will be shipped to you prior to the event date.
Date: May 8th
