THE STORY:

Whitney Soule wrote -

Bowdoin College Students and Staff are supporting EVERY MOTHER COUNTS by running the Eastern States 20 miler/ Run for the Border Half Marathon IN SUPPORT OF MATERNAL HEALTH AROUND THE WORLD.

We are the first college based running group to support EMC and we hope you will help us to raise money for the healthcare of pregnant moms. Every day, 800 women die during pregnancy and childbirth.  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 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.

Every Mile Counts because Every Mother Counts. Together, with your help and our miles, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
