BENEFITING: Every Mother Counts
ORGANIZER: Every Mother Counts
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
In less than a week I'm running my first Half Marathon, the 2016 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon to support a wonderful cause "Every Mother Counts" in support of improving maternal health around the world.
I've joined EMC to help raise awareness about this global tragedy, a tragedy I have witnessed through my work in global health. I have chosen to participate in the race because often distance is the biggest barrier to a woman and her family getting the care they need. In support of EMC, we hope to not only increase awareness for the cause but to also make the vital connection, in support of so many pregnant women who live far from health services around the world...that distance does make a difference. Simply put, we want to run so that others don't have to...
Together, with your help and our miles, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
