THE STORY:

THANKS, EVERYONE, for the many and generous donations! We've increased our target to $10,000; more donations are always welcome, and will contribute directly to FCI's work. Keep going!

I'm running the NYC Marathon to celebrate the city I love, and to raise money for the cause I've dedicated my life to -- helping women in poor communities around the world get the essential health care they need to go through pregnancy and childbirth safely. My organization, Family Care International (www.familycareintl.org), was founded over 25 years ago to prevent the tragic deaths of hundreds of thousands of women, almost all of them in villages and slums in Africa, Asia and Latin America, who die or are maimed for life because they don't have access to the health services they need. We've made a lot of progress, but the problem is still huge, and it affects the poorest, the youngest, those with the least education and income.

In my travels around the world I've seen far too many girls and women who have suffered horribly, and I've seen far too many children with that look in their eyes that comes with having lost a mother. The basic services that can prevent these tragedies are well known: contraception, so that women can decide whether, when and how often to get pregnant; prenatal care to monitor their health during pregnancy; and care from a doctor, nurse or midwife during delivery, so that unexpected complications can be dealt with swiftly and effectively. Care after childbirth is important too, to make sure each woman and newborn is recovering and thriving.

Raising funds for this cause by running the NYC Marathon allows me to combine two central passions in my life. I would love to have your support. I’m hoping to raise at least $5,000; I promise you that every dollar will go to support FCI’s urgently important work. Many thanks.
