THE STORY:

When I was 37 weeks pregnant with my now six-year-old, I was diagnosed with a potentially fatal condition called preeclampsia. I had an emergency induction and was fortunate enough to give birth to a healthy baby and have a normal post-natal recovery. Nineteen months later, a woman I'll never meet - who is homeless and didn't know she was pregnant - gave birth to a premature baby boy who by the grace of God survived the night. The next day, she walked a mile to the nearest road, hitchhiked to the hospital, and dropped him off with nurses and social workers who eventually called us. My first child is here because of the miracle of modern medicine; my second child is here because of an honest-to-God miracle. 

One of the biggest obstacles that prevents women in many parts of the world from experiencing the miracle of motherhood is distance - they are simply too far away from a medical professional and they lack the means to make the trek. The result is that over 303,000 women die every year as a result of childbirth and pregnancy, despite the fact that 98% of those deaths are preventable. Every Mother Counts uses running as one of the main sources of fundraising to help fund midwifery programs in developing countries, improve access to transportation, and increase quantity and quality of medical supplies. When I run I make the trek that many mothers simply cannot make. I run for them. Will you join me?
