I am running the 2020 NYC Half Marathon on March 15th for Every Mother Counts to 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. I run because often distance is the biggest barrier to a woman and her family getting the care they need. Simply put, I want to run so that others don't have to...And now, I am hoping you will lend your support no matter how big or small.
As a Registered Nurse working in Labor and Delivery, Recovery, and Postpartum, I am comitted to not only my patients, but mothers everywhere deserving of a safe and healthy delivery.
Every Mile Counts because Every Mother Counts. Together, with your help and our miles, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
