On November 4th, 2018, I will be running the San Francisco Golden Gate Half Marathon to raise awareness and fundraise for Every Mother Counts, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting maternal healthcare around the world. As a mother, who experienced two high-risk pregnancies plus childbirth complications, I am eternally grateful to my caring and skilled team that surrounded me during that time. I was one of the lucky ones...not every mother has access to the quality care that they need.
Hundreds of thousands of women die during pregnancy and childbirth each year. That's 800 women every day. The good news is that 98% of these deaths can be prevented. Every Mother Counts is dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere. I am running for Team EMC because this cause is near and dear to my heart.
Please consider donating to my race fund for Every Mother Counts - no matter how big or small. Your donation goes directly to support maternal health programs on the ground and may potentially help another mother in need of better maternal care.
Thank you! xx Elisabeth
