BENEFITING: Every Mother Counts
ORGANIZER: Every Mother Counts
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my fundraising page. As most of you already know, this year I will be running the NYC Marathon as a member of Team EMC for an extremely personal and meaningful cause. EVERY MOTHER COUNTS is a non-profit organization that raises money and awareness to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. I was fortunate enough to have been blessed by the birth of my beautiful son, Logan, earlier this year. I was lucky enough to have had amazing maternal care throughout my pregnancy and childbirth, but I know this is not the case for many women in this country and around the world.
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.
This year, I'm joining Team EMC to run the 2016 TCS NYC Marathon and continue raising awareness about this global tragedy. We've chosen to participate in the race because often distance is the biggest barrier to a woman and her family getting the care they need. We hope to not only increase awareness for the cause but to also make the vital connection for people that so many pregnant women live far from health services around the world and that distance does make a difference. Simply put, we want to run so that others don't have to...
And now, we're hoping you will lend your support no matter how big or small. When you donate, 100% of your donation goes directly to support maternal health programs on the ground.
Together, with your help and our miles, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. Every Mile Counts because Every Mother Counts.
