THE STORY:

Two years ago, I had never run more than 6 miles. Somehow, a little over a year later, I found myself completing my first full marathon. And as many of you now know, I've become somewhat of a running fanatic.

When my senior manager at work approached me about Team Every Mother Counts and the opportunity to help others through the NYC Half-marathon, I knew I had to jump at the opportunity. Any and all support is appreciated, and I encourage all to read more below about the wonderful work that Team EMC is doing. Thank you to all for your support! 

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 United Airlines NYC Half 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 March 20, 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.
