EVERY MOTHER COUNTS
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.
Every Mile Counts because Every Mother Counts. Together, with your help and our miles, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
Family and Friends,
As many of you know, I plan to run the NYC Marathon on November 5th with EVERY MOTHER COUNTS in support of maternal health around the world. It's my time to give back - my four children inspire me every day and I feel incredibly blessed to have four healthy birth stories to share with them.
I've chosen to participate because often distance is the biggest barrier to a woman and her family getting the care they need. I hope to not only increase awareness for the cause but to also make the vital connection for people that many pregnant women live far from health services around the world and that distance does make a difference. Simply put, I want to run so that others don't have to... And now, I'm hoping you will lend your support no matter how big or small. Your donation goes directly to support maternal health programs on the ground.
I'm excited for November 5th - I'm excited to make a difference.
With all my heart and gratitude!
