Dear Friends & Family!
I'm running the Oslo Center Race on April 25th and committed to raising funds for "Every Mother Counts" (EMC), a non-profit organization dedicated to improving and raising awareness for Maternal Healthcare worldwide.
This subject matter is quite dear to me. In 2016, I ALMOST lost my only child due to health complications around week 23 of my pregnancy. I made it through, but not everyone, especially those with less resources and care, are able to say the same. Statistics are currently daunting. Every year, 303,000 women around the world die as a result of complications of pregnancy and childbirth. That´s 1 woman every 2 minutes. Almost all of these global maternal deaths can be prevented by ensuring that women have access to quality, respectful and equitable maternity care.
HOW YOU CAN HELP?
Upon completing the 10K race, I would be thankful for your generous donation of 180 kroner (20 USD or 15 GBP). That is 18kr (2 USD or 1.5 GBP) per kilometer.
