Every Mother Counts is an organization dedicated to helping reduce the number of maternal deaths worldwide. We often take for granted our access to healthcare and prenatal care, however, there are several places where women do not have the prenatal care they and their babies so desperately need. For instance, did you know that a 5k is less than the average distance a woman must walk (in labor!!!) to get medical attention. My own labor and delivery was an especially difficult one, so I know what it is to need that medical care. Because of my own experiences this is a cause very near and dear to my heart and its my hope to make even a small difference by running my first half marathon on behalf of Every Mother Counts. Because every mother really does count, and every mother deserves to be present for all the amazing experiences that come with having a child. Please consider donating to such a worthy cause. No donation is too small or too big (wink, wink).
