THE STORY:

Dear friends and family,

Every Mother Counts is a charity that means the world to me.

Many of you know of my own personal history losing my first child and the precarious situation that resulted, as I delivered her. I owe the subsequent healthy births of my two little boys Tarek and Zayd, to the high quality care I received in NYC by my Ob/Gyn. Unfortunately, many around the world, and even in the US, are not able to receive adequate care and do not survive what should be the most beautiful and carefree moment in a woman's life: childbirth.

I ask you to kindly support me once again, however you can (no donation is ever too small)  as I run for Every Mother Counts again this March 20th, 2016. We all have mothers, sisters, wives and daughters who we love. Please donate for them and for all those who need your help still in some of the toughest places in the world.

I thank you in advance from the bottom of my heart,

Love

Amira

EVERY MOTHER COUNTS IS RUNNING THE 2016 UNITED AIRLINES NYC 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.

This year, join us in solidarity to run the 2016 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon and continue raising awareness about this global tragedy. We've chosen to participate in the 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. 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 March 20, 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 ever mother.
