On Sunday November 25th, Team Oiselle will be toeing the start line of the Seattle Half Marathon as Team EMC. Sally, Jacquelyn, Kristin, Suzy and I are all running to raise funds and awareness for Every Mother Counts.
What is Team Every Mother Counts?
Every Mother Counts was founded by Christy Turlington Burns to support global maternal health. The mission of EMC is to ensure that all mothers have the care they need to have safe pregnancies and deliveries. Also of course to help with preventing unwanted pregnancies, women's health in general. It's truly inspiring. The race is symbolic in a way. We run this race so that mothers around the world don't have to walk.
Join Us & Enter to Win EMC Gear!
It's my first time running for something bigger than myself and I'm very excited! We each have a fundraising goal of $1,000 and as the date approaches we want to blow that number up.
We understand that you all have charities that you give to, that your funds are already committed to. That said, even $10 would be immensely helpful in reaching our goal, or $13.10. But also sharing with a friend or social community that may have a heart for EMC would be so rad and have great impact.
In the top row of the Seattle Half Team EMC page you'll find all the Oiselle birds, click here to donate.
If you feel inspired to give or share the mission you are qualified to enter the EMC contest: please Tweet or share on Facebook. Call out Oiselle (@oiselle) and use #TeamEMCSea so we can spot you and enter you in the contest to win Team EMC gear!*
Note: Once you see a bird has hit $1,000 find another bird to attach your donation, spread the love to another bird!
* In the next 10 days we will randomly select winners to receive spike bags, tees, or even a hoodie! Stay tuned on Facebook and Twitter to see if you win!
* Men: we have tees for you too!
And of course, 40% of net proceeds from Collection EMC go to the charity! Shop the Every Mother Counts Collection here.
