BENEFITING: Every Mother Counts
ORGANIZER: Every Mother Counts
I AM EXCITED TO BE RUNNING THE 2016 BANK OF AMERICA CHICAGO MARATHON WITH TEAM "EVERY MOTHER COUNTS" IN SUPPORT OF MATERNAL HEALTH AROUND THE WORLD.
Sadly, 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.
Every Mother Counts is a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother and has programs running in many countries including; India, Uganda and Haiti.
I have chosen to participate in the race because often distance is the biggest barrier to a woman and her family getting the care they need.
I hope 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. With your help and support for my miles, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safer for every mother.
With much gratitude,
