This May, join Every Mother Counts in a choose-your-own-workout Global Fitness Challenge in honor of Mother’s Month.

why we’re doing this

We believe that safe, respectful and equitable maternity care is a fundamental human right. That’s why we’re uniting people across the world to join us in a single global fitness challenge to raise awareness and funds for maternal health. Wherever you are, however you choose to participate. 

Every dollar raised will support local organizations working with marginalized communities to protect the wellbeing of mothers and families.
