Please help me in supporting a wonderful charity for the 2013 New York City Half Marathon: Every Mother Counts.
EVERY MOTHER COUNTS IS RUNNING THE NEW YORK CITY HALF MARATHON IN SUPPORT OF MATERNAL HEALTH AROUND THE WORLD.
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.
Together, with your help and our miles, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for all moms.
