On October 7, 2018 I will be flying across the Atlantic and joining TEAM EMC - EVERY MOTHER COUNTS for the 2018 Chicago Marathon. This is my first ever marathon (26.2 miles!) in order to raise money for Every Mother Counts, a very worthy cause which is close to my heart.
Hundreds of thousands of women die during pregnancy and childbirth each year. That's 800 women every single 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 appreciate any donations big or small - thank you so much for your generosity!
