In some parts of the world, many for women to have to travel as far as 26 miles to reach a provider or clinic, even when in labor, and often on foot. Team EMC runs because distance is one of the biggest barriers preventing women from accessing healthcare of any kind. Your miles can make a difference.
When you sign up for one of our official charity races, you’ll run on Team EMC.
As a Team EMC runner, you’ll have guaranteed entry to the race, access to a professional running coach, custom training plans, team training runs, team meal on race weekend, and exclusive Every Mother Counts’ gear. For most races, we will even cover your registration fees. Because official races require fundraising minimums, we will help set up your personal fundraising page and provide you with a fundraising toolkit to meet your goals.
Ambassadors organize teams at local running events, act as team captains, build communities of supporters, and host awareness-raising events. Fundraising for these races is not required, but you can earn gifts like t-shirts, singlets, water bottles, and more based on how much you raise. Check out ambassador races on our calendar.
