303,000 Women die every year as a result of complications during pregnancy and childbirth - that is one woman every 2 minutes. 98% of these deaths are preventable. Please help me raise funds with Every Mother Counts to assist women around the world with transportation, education for skilled birth attendants and supplies to help give health centers have the necessary equipment to perform their role.
Why do I do this? Four years ago a dear friend fought for her life and came out on the other side, unfortunately, her sweet baby boy did not make it. Although I never met him he impacts my life daily. I want him to look down and know that we are trying to make a change in his honor and I want his parents to be so proud of the amazing legacy he left here. To honor them, I will be running the Eno River Trail Run on 10/27 and raising funds for Every Mother Counts - a non-profit dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere.
