Hundreds of thousands of women die during pregnancy and childbirth each year. That's 800 women every day. The good news is that 90% 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.
These statistics are just part of the reason why I’ve chosen to fundraise for Every Mother Counts and participate in marathons, half-marathons, and various local endurances events around my great community. I am committed to raising awareness through my running so that vulnerable mothers can access the critical maternal health care they need and that we can continue to address the barriers to maternal health around the world & here at home!
What is Every Mother Counts? EMC 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. I'm running for EMC because I know that together, we can all make a difference in making pregnancy and childbirth safe for all moms. Any amount you can donate helps--$5 is enough to make sure a pregnant woman in Uganda can be transported safely to a clinic when she goes into labor, so she doesn't have to walk. Every Mother Counts and every donation counts!
Where do your funds go?
