THE STORY:

Heather Koland wrote -

I AM RUNNING THE 2016 BOLDER BOULDER 10K IN SUPPORT OF MATERNAL HEALTH AROUND THE WORLD WITH TEAM EVERY MOTHER COUNTS.

Hundreds of thousands of women die during pregnancy and childbirth each year. That's 800 women every day. However, 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. They inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world. This year, join me in solidarity to run the 2016 Bolder Boulder 10K and continue raising awareness about this global tragedy. I have chosen to participate in the race because often distance is the biggest barrier to a woman and her family getting the care they need. I hope to not only increase awareness for the cause but to also make the vital connection for people that so many pregnant women live far from health services around the world and that distance does make a difference. Simply put, I want to run so that others don't have to... And now, I'm 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.

(Every little bit counts & donors will get some awesome New Mexico themed prizes & swag!)

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 me on if you're in the Colorado area. (Or via positive text messages!)

4. You can run with me in solidarity on May 30, 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.
