Stuff About Me:

Hi! I am running the LA Marathon this March to help raise funds and awareness for Every Mother Counts, a non-profit that supports grants for expecting mothers in need in countries like Haiti and Western Uganda. If you are curious as to why I am running and would like to help support me raise funds for the campaign, read more below!

 
About 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 an advocacy and mobilization campaign to increase education and support for maternal mortality reduction globally.  Every Mother Counts seeks to engage new audiences to better understand the challenges and the solutions while encouraging them to take action to improve the lives of girls and women worldwide.
 
Where will these funds go:
100% of what I raise will be going to support women in need around the world. In the past year, Every Mother Counts announced two new grants they will be supporting. EMC is funding training for 15 women in Haiti to become skilled birth attendants who will each attend at least 100 deliveries per year and they are also providing transport vouchers for women in western Uganda so that they can access maternity care throughout their pregnancies. With this figure the money raised, EMC will be able to commit more to these grants and others like them. For more on these grants, click here  
 
Thank you in advance for your support, it means the world to me!!!
