Why are we running? Because millions of mothers do not have access to skilled care and supplies to ensure a safe delivery. T and I are excited to make a difference and you can be a part of it #RunTeamEMC #everymomcounts #everymileeverymother
We are running with Every Mother Counts at the 2019 Golden Gate Half Marathon & 5K on November 3rd for the 5th year 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.
