BENEFITING: Every Mother Counts
EVENT DATE: Mar 16, 2013
Every minute and a half a woman dies related to childbirth, 90% of these could be prevented with proper prenatal care. The biggest barrier to obtaining prenatal care is access to skilled providers or transportation for emergency care. We will be raising funds to donate to Every Mother Counts, they are currently working on projects that will make care more accessible in vulnerable regions.
Our Holy Cross Hospital team will train for and run this 5K, with each team member having a personal $100 dollar goal.
