THE STORY:

Hi Friends and Family!

I'm running the NYC Half Marathon this Spring on behalf of Every Mother Counts. Every Mother Counts is a campaign to end preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world. Every Mother Counts informs, engages, and mobilizes new audiences to take action to improve the health and well-being of girls and women worldwide.

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—if we make it a priority.

The EMC team has chosen to participate in the race 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...

My own mama- the beautiful, generous, mother of all mothers, Sharon Grassini- had 5 babies. As the youngest of those babies, I feel blessed every day that she was able to easily receive the care she needed during her pregnancies so that we could grow up strong, healthy and able to live the happy, love-filled lives she provided for us.

Once, I wanted to be an actor. Now, I'm going to be a doctor. Today, I've decided to try out being a "serious runner." God help me. I might break a leg this time, literally. Anyway, please give what you can... or come out and cheer us on on March 17th in NYC- green beers on me afterwards! 

1.    You can click on the DONATE button to contribute what you can on behalf of one of our Every Mother Counts Runners.

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 sign up on Charity Miles, a free app for your iPhone or android that lets you earn 25¢ per mile for EMC whenever you run. It's a free, easy way to raise both money and awareness for EMC when we're training.

XOXO

Molly
