In the Fall of 2014 I took up running at the prompting of a friend. Quickly, running became a way to prove to myself what I was capable of, to manage stress and to find new motivation. It also introduced me to a very special group of people and Every Mother Counts. EMC, an organization supporting maternal health world wide, added to my list of reasons to run. This New York Marathon will be my first ever marathon and every mile is dedicated to the obstacles mothers face in getting the care they need. With your support lets find out what is possible!
Every Mother Counts
- WHY TEAM 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 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.
Every Mother Counts is a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. Every Mother Counts informs, engages, and mobilizes 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 2015 TCS New York City 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...
