EVERY MOTHER COUNTS IS RUNNING THE 2016 MIAMI MARATHON AND HALF MARATHON 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. We inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world.
We've chosen to participate in this race because often distance is the biggest barrier to a woman and her family getting the care they need. We 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, 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.
Please feel free to contact me if you'd like to know more about Every Mother Counts and/or my participation in this race.
Together, with your help and our miles, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere.
