Global Running Day run
Join us on June 5 in running with runners around the globe in this virtual run benefitting Every Mother Counts.
Donate $5 for a 5K or $10 for a 10K. 100% of proceeds from your run will be donated to EMC to improve access to basic and lifesaving maternity care.
On June 5th, grab your running shoes and head out anytime, anywhere.
Post a photo on social media in your virtual race bib and tell us why you run using hashtags #whyirun, #everymothercounts and #globalrunningday.
Every day, over 800 women will not survive pregnancy or childbirth, and thousands more will suffer from long-term disabilities. Yet, with consistent access to transportation, education and supplies – we can prevent these outcomes.
While there are many obstacles mothers face when accessing care, distance alone presents one of the greatest barriers. In many parts of the world, women have to walk an average of 8 miles to reach the nearest public health facility – even while pregnant or in labor. Every Mother Counts runs so mothers can reach the care they need.
Join us on June 5, 2019
