Making the connection between giving birth and running a marathon was something my mother used to do in her work as an ob/gyn. That is why I use my marathon training and races as an opportunity to honor her memory with raising money to help making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere.
You can follow my training on Instagram @MarathonForBirthHelp where I'll be posting images from my runs. I'm hoping people will donate one dollar per kilometer (or mile) of a marathon. ($42 or $26) Any donation helps, as well as sharing this information with others.
