We are at it again!
You may remember that Bowdoin had a team running for Every Mother Counts in 2016.
Each of us made it here thanks to a mother giving us life.. but a lot of mothers don't survive. Even with excellent health care, I nearly died giving birth to my second daughter due to post-partum hemmorhaging. Many mothers aren't so lucky, especially those without access to quality care.
Every Mother Counts, www.everymothercounts.org provides education, financial support, and medical care for maternal care around the world.
Our Bowdoin Team is running to raise money for this important organization. On March 24th, we are toeing the starting line for the Eastern States 20 miler - a race that begins in Maine, goes through New Hampshire, and finishes in Massachusetts! Members of our team have the choice of the 20 mile, 13.1, or 3.1 distances.
We'll be training and supporting each other through the winter months in Maine.
You can support us with a donation to this great cause!
Thank you for considering us and Every Mother Counts as we tackle the mileage and the challenge.
