Rachel Shepherd's Fundraiser:

2016 Chicago Marathon - Team Every Mother Counts

THE STORY:

I am so excited to be running the 2016 Bank of America Chicago Marathon with Every Mother Counts in support of maternal health around the world.

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. We inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world.

This year, join me in raising funds and awareness about this global tragedy. I'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. I 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, I want to run so that others don't have to...

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.  Your donation is tax deductible, and you will receive a recipt upon donation.

Together, with your help and our miles, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
