BENEFITING: Every Mother Counts
ORGANIZER: Every Mother Counts
I'm excited to be running the 2016 Bank of America Chicago Marathon in support of Every Mother Counts.
Every Mother Counts is a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. They inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world. Every year, 303,000 women die as a result of complications during pregnancy and child birth. That's one woman every 2 minutes. And for every one of these deaths, an average of four orphans are left behind. But it doens't have to be this way.
When you donate, 100% of your donation goes directly to support maternal health programs on the ground. Together, with your help and the miles of the collective Every Mother Counts team, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
