I am running this race with and in honor of my amazing friend Dayna. She has been a true inspiration as a runner, a colleague, a mother and a friend. She has most recently run Big Sur on behalf of EMC, in honor of her babies and her pregnancies and to shed light on the importance of maternal health care.
As a mother myself to the two most amazing children in the world and someone who has also experienced pregnancy loss, I too am running in honor of all women, mothers and their babies who make this way into the workd and in memory for all those who do not.
I hope you consider contributing to this fundraising campaign and making a difference in the lives of millions of mothers and their babies here and around the world.
Every Mother Counts is running the 2019 Falmouth, MA Road Race 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. 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.
Here are some ways you can get involved.
1. REGISTER to become a runner and fundraiser yourself to help us raise the much-needed funds and spread the word about this cause. The fundraising minimum is $750.
2. You can run with us in solidarity on August 18th. Remember that any distance from 5k to 13.1 miles would be an amazing act of support of our mission.
Every Mile Counts because Every Mother Counts. Together, with your help and our miles, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
