BENEFITING: Every Mother Counts
ORGANIZER: Every Mother Counts
EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2017
I am running the 2017 Big Sur International Marathon with EVERY MOTHER COUNTS, a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
Pregnancy is a leading cause of death in women ages 15-19 in the developing world. Each year, over three hundred thousand women die during pregnancy and childbirth. (That's 800 women every day.) The good news is that 98% of these deaths can be prevented.
Every Mother Counts informs, engages, and mobilizes new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world. You can read more about EMC's work here.
As a member of the EMC Team, I am asking you to please lend support! Here are some ways you can get involved:
- DONATE: Contribute what you can. Every dollar helps!
- JOIN THE TEAM: Become a fundraiser yourself and help raise the much-needed funds for this cause.
- EMOTIONAL SUPPORT: Come out and cheer for us on April 30, 2017, or run with us in solidarity!
With your help, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
