BENEFITING: Every Mother Counts
ORGANIZER: Every Mother Counts
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
I am very excited to be running in the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon with Every Mother Counts in support of maternal health around the world. As a mother and a daughter of an ob/gyn it is a cause very dear to me. Every women deserves a chance to have a heathly pregnancy and childbirth.
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. We have the tools and the know-how to save these mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, teachers, doctors, caregivers and community leaders—if we make it a priority.
Every Mother Counts is a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. We inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world.
I am asking for your support by donating any amount possible for this great cause.
