I love distance running and I love the work of Every Mother Counts as they raise awareness about maternal health globally. 300,000 Mums die due to complications during pregnancy and birth. For each of these deaths, an average of 4 orphans are left behind. While most maternal deaths occur in the developing world, 2 women die everyday here in the U.S. 98% of these deaths are avoidable. We run marathons because 42km / 26 miles is the average distance women need to walk to seek help once complications strike In the past, I have been lucky enough to run the New York City marathon with Team EMC in 2015. This year I am running the Gold Coast Marathon in July and the Sydney Marathon in September. I'd love your support so we can end the unnecessary maternity-related deaths around the world.
