THE STORY:

My youngest son, Noah, came to our family via adoption. His biological mother didn't have access to prenatal care and gave birth to him outside, alone. After he was born she WALKED a mile to the nearest road, hitchiked to the hospital, and surrendered her premature infant. I run for her. 26.2 miles seems impossible to me, but when I'm tempted to quit I'll think of the mile she walked and I'll summon her strength. I hope you'll join me in supporting this cause. XO, Anna

From Every Mother Counts:

EVERY MOTHER COUNTS IS RUNNING THE 2016 BIG SUR INTERNATIONAL MARATHON & RELAY 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, everywhere. We inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world. This year, join us in solidarity as we run the 2016 Big Sur International Marathon and continue raising awareness about this global tragedy. We've chosen to participate in the race because distance is often the biggest barrier obstructing a woman from getting the care she needs. 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. When you donate, 100% of your donation goes directly to support maternal health programs on the ground. Here are some ways you can get involved. 1. You can click on the DONATE button to contribute what you can on behalf of one of our Every Mother Counts Runners. 2. You can JOIN THE TEAM to become a fundraiser yourself and help us raise the much-needed funds and spread the word about this cause. 3. You can purchase an EMC t-shirt & gear from Oiselle.com and come out and cheer us on. 4. You can run with us in solidarity on April 24th, 2016. Remember that any distance from 5k to 26.2 miles would be an amazing act of support of our mission. Every Mile Counts because Every Mother Counts. Together, with your help and our miles, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
