BENEFITING: Every Mother Counts
ORGANIZER: Every Mother Counts
I'm so excited to announce that I'll be running as part of team Every Mother Counts in the 2016 New York City Marathon on November 6th.
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.
I'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. I 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, I want to run so that others don't have to...
