Dear friends and family - I …
Dear friends and family - I did it and finished in 4 hours 15 minutes! Running the New York City marathon was in every way an experience to be grateful for. Not unexpectedly, the second half was a lot more challenging than the first, but the crowds along the road in every neighborhood were fantastic. This run truly takes you thru all that is New York City and it is hard to describe the feeling of spontaneous and heartfelt cheers from complete strangers all along the route. It was such positive energy and made all the difference. Hitting the finish line, I was completely exhausted and exhilarated at once and already vowing to do it again.

But most importantly, this message is a big thank you to all for your generous support of Every Mother Counts. I was able to raise nearly $5,500 for this great cause and collectively, our team of 70 runners raised over $210K. Thank you! Cheers and happy voting tomorrow. Estelle

Wow! We made it - after six …
Wow! We made it - after six hard-fought weeks of the Revlon Love Is On Million Dollar Challenge, we’ve crossed the finish line. We’re SO proud of our 4th place finish - with a $50,000 prize from Revlon, we’ve raised over HALF A MILLION dollars for Type 1 diabetes! This was truly a community effort - 2200 individual donors supported 88 teams of T1D families + individuals to get us to this awesome achievement.
In the end, over 6 million dollars was raised by the 150 nonprofit organizations participating. That’s amazing! The Challenge fueled the fire for so many important, inspiring causes, encouraging communities to come together and give in huge amounts. It’s inspiring to think about the ripple effect this challenge will have - the money raised will make a positive impact in areas including breast cancer research, grieving children, mental health, eating disorders, and (of course) Type 1 diabetes!
A huge thank you to all of our captains, supporters and community members who ran this marathon with us over the past six weeks. Each and every donor to the campaign is listed on The Hot List - we are truly grateful to you all - and hope you’re feeling the love!
Every gift to the campaign will have a direct and immediate impact across the Type 1 community, allowing Beyond Type 1 to launch new programs (like our app, the Snail Mail Club, our global DKA awareness campaign) alongside issuing grants to the most promising education, advocacy, and cure research. We’ll also be attending the Challenge Awards Ceremony in NYC + have the opportunity to pitch Beyond Type 1 + Type 1 diabetes to the folks at Revlon.

Thank you!!

Dear Friends, With your sup…
Dear Friends,

With your support I was able to complete my 2nd NYC Marathon this past
Sunday. It took me 4:35 hours to complete 26.2 miles, which wasn't all bad considering the state of my body over the last two months. Every mile, every minute, every hour was a reminder of the vital work of this organization and the community who supports us. I don't know that I could have done it without you, just as I don't know how so many mothers give birth without anyone by their side. With your generosity and encouragement, we surpassed our $200K goal, which will allow Every Mother Counts to continue to provide transport to moms so that they are supported through labor in Western Uganda and beyond. Our hope is to improve upon this successful transportation voucher model -one important first step being to integrate antenatal care into our grant in Uganda so that women get the care they need throughout their pregnancy and not just at the time of delivery. The research on the collective efforts of the Saving Mothers, Giving Life Partnership have proven that the voucher system is being utilized which proves that our contributions are ensuring that more mothers have access to critical maternity care.

With my sincere gratitude,

Christy
