Happy Holidays and a BIG December vote for you!!

Please check out my "Mud for Art" project...
I am raising money for The California State Summer School Arts Foundation at CalArts. Its mission is to train the next generation of arts professionals in animation, creative writing, dance, film & video, music, theatre, and visual arts. And what better way to raise money for this amazing program than to run through obstacles and mud?! And my next run is coming up soon!!

Your donations will help support low-income, aspiring artists and will enable those students to realize their dreams and aspirations in the arts.

Hello, how are you doing? Here is my November vote for you. You are doing amazing things for charity here at Crowdrise. Please consider supporting my fundraiser for The Trevor Project. It would mean so much to me.

The Trevor Project is all about helping teenagers that are struggeling daily with depression, anxiety, bullying, discrimination just because they are gay. I am a lesbian myself and I have personally experienced how it is when people say you are sick because you are gay. The Trevor Lifeline is the only nationwide, around-the-clock crisis and suicide prevention helpline for LGBTQ youth. There should be equal rights for everyone and it is time to raise awareness and help these teenagers get a good life and let them experience what true love is.

I hope to hear from you.
Cheers,
Elise Marie

Stuff About Me:

 

Why I am running again?


I am sure I am not the first or last woman to liken running a marathon to giving birth. I know at least one who wrote a brilliant blog about it last year after she completed her first on behalf of Every Mother Counts. 

If you are with me on the analogy so far, you'll understand my reasoning for attempting another race. Running a marathon was definitely on my bucket list at some point but when I became a mom it fell further back on that list.

Then, last August, out of nowhere the opportunity came about and I jumped at the chance to challenge myself by running my first marathon that November. Well, it wasn't entirely out of nowhere in the end. As small as we were, and still are, Every Mother Counts was offered ten bibs for the 42nd ING NYC Marathon. We recognized right away that we knew enough runners to wear them. However, in committing personally to run on behalf of the organization I founded, it donned on me that there was perhaps no better way to highlight one particular maternal health challenge that arguably leads to countless preventable deaths related to both pregnancy and childbirth - distance.  When we filmed "No Woman, No Cry" in Tanzania back in 2009, we met Janet after she had walked 5 kilometers to the nearest clinic- weeks past her due date and pregnant with her third child, hoping to deliver there. She was then turned away because of a shortage of beds after a few hours and expected to walk all the way back home. A few days later she returned but the staff and clinic were unable and unequipped to help her, so our film crew organized transport to get her to the nearest hospital 35 kilometers away. What we learned from Janet's story was that hers is not extraordinary. In fact, 5k is the minimum distance women must walk for basic prenatal care or health services of any kind and the distance of a marathon (26.2 miles) is not an uncommon distance for a woman to have to travel to reach emergency obstetric care.

Our team ran so that other moms don't have to walk and there was no greater motivation for every mile we trained and every mile of that race. When I hit my wall at mile 19, Nick, one of my teammates and also my running coach said, "think of all those moms, Christy. You can do this. You can do it for them." And I did. After I crossed the finish line last year I was asked if I'd do it again, and unlike after delivering Grace, when I knew the answer was "heck yah," I just wasn't sure. Not until we got the call once again, "How many bibs do you need?"

This year Team EMC has grown to 50. I have two kids, so I had to do it at least one more time, right?

If you supported me last year, thank you again. While I'd love your support again there are lots of ways to do so.

1.     You can make a donation to my Crowdrise page here.

2.     You can purchase an EMC t-shirt from Oiselle.com and come out and cheer us on.

3.     You can run with us in solidarity on November 4th. 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.
