BENEFITING: Every Mother Counts
ORGANIZER: Every Mother Counts
Team Durham Girls - Amy, Katharine, Danielle and Laura are running THE 2018 BIG SUR MARATHON WITH EVERY MOTHER COUNTS TO SUPPORT MATERNAL HEALTH AROUND THE WORLD.
Every Mother Counts is a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. This year, join us in solidarity as we run the 2018 Big Sur Marathon and continue raising awareness about this global tragedy. We are running for EMC because often distance is the biggest barrier to a woman and her family getting the care they need. We 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, we want to run so that others don't have to...And now, we're hoping you will lend your support no matter how big or small.
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.
Approximately 303,000 women die each year due to complications in pregnancy and childbirth. That’s one woman every 2 minutes.
Support our run and the cause, select DONATE to contribute what you can.
THANK YOU for your donation and helping us increase awareness and furthuring the efforts of Every Mother Counts. Your contributions mean a lot to each of us and the many women and children who are helped.
