On Sunday March 17 I am running the New York City Half Marathon in support of Every Mother Counts (EMC). Founded in 2010, EMC is dedicated to improving maternal health and decreasing childbirth related mortality around the world.
Everyday 800 women die in childbirth, and for every death there 20 more life changing injuries. Worldwide childbirth is the leading cause of death in women 15-44. At least 90% of these deaths and injuries are preventable with the basic medical and supplies.
EMC's mission is deliver these supplies and provide transportation to safe medical facilities so that at-risk women not only survive childbirth but thrive with their children. To learn more, please click here: http://everymothercounts.org/issue.
Please join me in supporting this wonderful organization and raising awareness about maternal health. My goal is to raise $1000 on behalf of Every Mother Counts. To make a gift please click here: http://www.crowdrise.com/TeamEMCnychalf2013/fundraiser/sarahsimon#.
EVERY gift helps to save the life of a new mother.
