ORGANIZER: Every Mother Counts
EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2017
Dear Friends and Family,
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. We have the tools and the know-how to save these mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, teachers, doctors, caregivers and community leaders—if we make it a priority.
Every Mother Counts is a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. They raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world.
This year, join me in solidarity as I run the 2017 Big Sur International Marathon and continue raising 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...
And now, I am hoping you will lend your support no matter how big or small.
Together, with your help and my miles, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
Sending an abundance of love and light ,
