EVERY MOTHER COUNTS IS RUNNING THE 2018 TOKYO MARATHON RAISE AWARENESS AND FUNDS TO SUPPORT MATERNAL HEALTH 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 up to 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. We run 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...And now, we're hoping you will lend your support no matter how big or small. ** While we do not have any additional spots in the Tokyo marathon, if you do already have a spot we would love for you to join our team & fundraise. Here are some other ways you can get involved. 1. DONATE to contribute what you can on behalf of one of our Every Mother Counts’ Runners. 2. Run in solidarity on February 28th in EMC gear to show support for our runners and our cause.
