My first marathon to help save the lives of Afghan women and children -- I need your support!
On August 12th, 2012, I will venture to the great state of Canada to run the St. John's Marathon By the Sea. It will be my first (and, let's be honest, likely only) marathon and I need your support.
Please help save the lives of women and children in Afghanistan through Empowerment Health. My goal is that the suffering of this marathon will result in the hiring of female community health workers to help save the lives of women and children just outside Kabul. But I need your help.
Afghanistan is the worst country in the world to be a mother and one child in five doesn't make it to age five - but this doesn't have to be so. Please help save lives through simple, proven effective, life-saving care for mothers and their children to see their children's 5th birthday together. With your support, I can reach the finish line.
