BENEFITING: Every Mother Counts
EVENT: 2015 Marine Corps Historic Half
EVENT DATE: Sunday, May 17, 2015
Being a mother to two healthy boys and having acces to top notch doctors and facilities is a blessing. To deny this opportunity to other women all over the world made my heart break. For many women pregnancy is an exciting and joyful experience, for others it can be a death sentence. EVERY DAY, 1000 women lose their lives due to complications caused by pregnancy or childbirth. But almost ALL of these deaths are preventable. For this very reason, I am honored to run for Team EMC at the MCHH this year and raise awareness and support for maternal and child health.
What is Every Mother Counts? EMC is a campaign to end preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world. We inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take action to improve the health and wellbeing of girls and women worldwide.
Hundreds of thousands of women and girls around the world die every year from childbirth and pregnancy-related conditions that are almost always preventable. We don’t need new medical procedures or cures to prevent these deaths. We know how to save mothers' lives. What we need are the resources to reach them, empower them and enable them to get the healthcare they need.
