In support of the work at Every Mothers Counts (EMC), I am running with my family and boyfriend the Rocky Run 5K on November 10, 2018 in Philadelphia, PA.
EMC is a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere. They provide grants to organizations around the world (from Bangladesh to the United States) in order to address 3 major barriers to maternal health: transportation, education, and supplies.
Instead of celebrating my birthday this year, I am asking you to donate to EMC and celebrate not only the work that EMC is doing, but also celebrate the lives you will be impacting with your donation.
Any amount of donation will be greatly appreciated and positively affect the lives of mothers, babies, and health providers around the world.
This fundraiser campaign will last 1 month, and I am hoping we can raise $300 (or more!). Why $300? The goal is to raise $100 for every mile I run.
Please follow @dgcastelblanco on Instagram for regular updates on the campaign, and to learn more EMC and maternal health more broadly.
For more information on EMC go to www.everymothercounts.org or @everymomcounts on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
