Traci Terry's Fundraiser:

2016 TCS New York City Marathon - Team Every Mother Counts

THE STORY:

I have decided to run the New York City Marathon on November 6, 2016 to fundraise for Every Mother Counts, a non-­profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. 100% of our donations and funds raised support women in need around the world. Every Mother Counts currently supports grants in Haiti, Indonesia, Uganda, Malawi, the DRC, India and the United States. 

Crossing the finish line this past April at the Big Sur Marathon for Every Mother Counts was an incredibly meaningful experience for me.  I ran a lot of mileage while training, I asked friends and family to donate, but in the end I got more out of this experience then I was expecting.  While I knew EMC was an impressive charity, I learned so much more through the process.  The whole journey ignited a passion and desire to do more.  So here I am, six months later, lacing up my shoes, dusting off the training plans and heading out the door to make a difference. I am so grateful and amazed at the support, love and inspiration I received for the Big Sur. I am setting my goals even higher this time, as I know together we can do more.

Please join me.

Donate. No donation is too small and 100% of our donations and funds raised support women in need around the world.

I would love for you to be part of my journey as we all take part in supporting mothers and maternal health around the world.  

Thank you,

Traci

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.
