Why not run the marathon and raise money for a great cause at the same time?
Saving Mothers is a 501c3 charity dedicated to eradicating preventable maternal deaths and birth-related complications in developing countries. It is our firm belief that the vast majority of these deaths are due to lack of access to basic reproductive care, and that this lack of access is a human rights violation on a grand scale. Founded and run by medical professionals, we effect change by educating and empowering women so they can become active participants in decision-making regarding their sexual and reproductive health. We also provide pro bono surgeries to correct birth-related complications like fistula and incontinence, and train local providers to ensure that underserved women have access to the quality of care they deserve.
