Did you know that distance is one of the greatest barriers to improving maternal health? That’s why I joined @RunTeamEMC in running the big 26.2 #everymileeverymother #everymomcounts #RunTeamEMC
Every Mother Counts is running the 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon for the 6th year in a row to raise awareness and funds to support maternal health around the world. Hundreds of thousands of women die during pregnancy and childbirth each year. The good news is that almost all of these deaths are preventable. 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.
I'm asking that you support me in running my first marathon, but most importantly, help me support women who do not have the same resources that most of us do.
Help me reach my goal, no matter how big or small, it is all so greatly appreciated.
