LSRJ IS RUNNING THE 2016 BANK OF AMERICA SHAMROCK SHUFFLE 8K IN SUPPORT OF 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 98% of these deaths can be prevented. We have the tools and the know-how to save these mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, teachers, doctors, caregivers and community leaders—if we make it a priority.
Every Mother Counts is a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. This year, join us in solidarity to run the 2016 Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K and continue raising awareness about this global tragedy. We've chosen to participate in the race because reproductive justice doesn't just mean birth control, it means the right for women to not needlessly risk their lives when giving birth.
When you donate, 100% of your donation goes directly to support maternal health programs on the ground.
