THE STORY:

Not long ago I wasn't quite keen on ever running a half-marathon again.

I have done a few in the past 10 years but the last ones - in 2013 & 2014 in Hong Kong - were a bit of disappointing performance compared to the early days...

But hey, after Brussels, Paris, Lille, Sydney and Hong Kong, gotta give it a try in NYC... and most importantly, this time I run also to raise awareness for a good cause!

Hundreds of thousands of women die during pregnancy and childbirth each year. That's 800 women every day. The good news is that 98% of these deaths can be prevented.

Every Mother Counts is a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.

They inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world.

EMC has chosen to participate in the race because often distance is the biggest barrier to a woman and her family getting the care they need.

Simply put, we want to run so that others don't have to...
