BENEFITING: Every Mother Counts
ORGANIZER: Every Mother Counts
EVENT DATE: Nov 05, 2017
This year, I was invited and challenged by a friend and colleague to run the NYC Marathon to support Every Mother Counts. Our family has benefitted from the best maternal health care possible, which I took for granted until being introduced to EMC through the marathon. Please consider contributing to this great cause.
EVERY MOTHER COUNTS IS RUNNING THE 2017 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.
