EVERY MOTHER COUNTS IS RUNNING THE 2017 BIG SUR INTERNATIONAL MARATHON IN SUPPORT OF MATERNAL HEALTH AROUND THE WORLD.

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.

I want to run for women's rights and women's health and I'm so excited to be part of this team!
