To honour the 830 mothers we will lose every day this year, over the weekend beginning 8/30, runners and walkers around the world will complete 8.30 mi/km to help improve maternal care.
Complete the distance in one go or break it up over the weekend. Whether you choose miles or kilometres, registration is just $10.
What It’s About
An average of 830 women die every day due to complications in pregnancy and childbirth. That means more than 303,000 women will die this year, instead of being mothers to their children. That’s one woman every two minutes.
But we can change this. Up to 98% of these deaths are preventable with the right healthcare, education and supplies.
100% of proceeds from The Mother Run will go to Every Mother Counts, whose mission is to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere.
