I'm at it again! Yes I am running another race for Team Every Mother Counts (EMC). On Mother's Day, I will be running in the 2019 Bridgehampton Half Marathon & 5K. I will be running the 5K portion. And this time I will be running with my 10 year old son, Daniel!!! We are running together 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. DONATE to contribute what you can on behalf of our run. Please help us reach our goal of $1,000.
2. JOIN THE TEAM to run with us and become a fundraiser yourself to help us raise the much-needed funds and spread the word about this cause. You have the option to join as just an individual with a $500 minimum, or run with your family and raise a minimum of $1,500! With your help, we can reach our team goal of $70,000!
Thank you for your support!
Ivy, Daniel & Team EMC
