THE STORY:

I am incredibly proud and excited to be running the 2016 TCS NYC Marathon on November 6 on the Every Mother Counts (EMC) team. Founded by Christy Turlington Burns, EMC is a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, raising funds and awareness for maternal health programs around the world. I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to give natural, unmedicated vaginal birth to two healthy boys -- thanks to the help and support of my wonderful doctors and doula throughout my pregnancy. But try to imagine going through pregnancy without seeing a single healthcare professional. Imagine giving birth in a room with no doctors, nurses or midwives, and with no lights, electricity, running water, or supplies. It's a terrifying thought. I am running the Marathon to help raise funds for EMC and for mothers and their families all around the world -- and I am asking for your help! Please consider a donation to this cause which is very near and dear to my heart. Any donation you make to support my run will help women and their families here in the United States and around the world. Every mother deserves a safe pregnancy and childbirth experience. Thank you so much!! 

EVERY MOTHER COUNTS IS RUNNING THE 2016 TCS NYC MARATHON IN SUPPORT OF MATERNAL HEALTH AROUND THE WORLD. 

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. We inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world.

This year, join us in solidarity to run the 2016 TCS NYC Marathon and continue raising awareness about this global tragedy. We'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. 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. When you donate, 100% of your donation goes directly to support maternal health programs on the ground. Here are some ways you can get involved. 

1. You can click on the DONATE button to contribute what you can on behalf of one of our Every Mother Counts Runners.

2. You can JOIN THE TEAM to become a fundraiser yourself and help us raise the much-needed funds and spread the word about this cause.

3. You can purchase an EMC t-shirt & gear from Oiselle.com and come out and cheer us on.

4. You can run with us in solidarity on November 5th, 2016. Remember that any distance from 5k to 26.2 miles would be an amazing act of support of our mission. Every Mile Counts because Every Mother Counts.

Together, with your help and our miles, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
