BENEFITING: Every Mother Counts
ORGANIZER: Every Mother Counts
EVENT DATE: Nov 05, 2017
I'm returning to the NYC marathon in 2017! My first marathon for Every Mother Counts was NYC in 2014, so this race has a special place in my heart as it completely changed my attitude toward running. It is also the last fundraiser I will be doing for EMC for a quite some time.
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. This year, join us in solidarity to run the 2017 TCS NYC MARATHON and continue raising awareness about this global tragedy.
