THE STORY:

Every Mother Counts wrote -

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. 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. We inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world. This year, join us in solidarity to run and/or ski with Team EMC in our Scandinavian races and continue raising awareness about this global tragedy. Our Every Mother Counts Team in Scandinavia/ Europe will participate in both running and skiing races across Scandinavia. See our Facebook page for current running races. The ski races we will participate in this season are Tjejvasan 30 k, in Sweden and Inga- Låmi 30 k, in Norway. We've chosen to participate and take action by racing 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... And now, we're hoping you will lend your support no matter how big or small. Here are some ways you can get involved. 1. You can click on the DONATE button to contribute what you can on behalf of one of our Every Mother Counts Runners/ Skiers. 2. You can JOIN THE TEAM to become a fundraiser yourself and help us raise the much-needed funds and spread the word about this cause. 3. You can purchase an EMC t-shirt & gear from Oiselle.com and come out and cheer us on. 4. You can run with us in solidarity in these races. Chose if you want to run, ski or both. Remember that any distance from 5k to 26.2 miles would be an amazing act of support of our mission. Every Mile Counts because Every Mother Counts. Together, with your help and our miles, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
