Join Jhpiego, a Johns Hopkins University affiliate, in fighting COVID-19 across the world in this year’s global Miles for Mothers Remix. This virtual event will help keep health care workers on the frontlines of COVID-19 safe while they prevent and contain outbreaks of COVID-19, and help moms and their families living in countries that were already experiencing crises before the COVID-19 pandemic, such as severe shortages of health care workers and lifesaving medical equipment, high maternal mortality rates, unreliable stocks of essential medicines, poor access to health facilities, lack of electricity and civil unrest.
Our goal is to raise $34,000 to help stop the pandemic in its tracks and save lives among the world’s most at-risk populations. Join us by walking, running, donating or fundraising to keep health care workers, moms and their families safe!
For several years now, I've participated in Jhpiego's Miles for Mothers Campaign to raise money to fill critical gaps in healthcare for families globally. This year, everything is a little bit different! We can't all be together to run in the Baltimore Running Festival, so each person is doing their own virtual run. We also are not raising funds for one specific project in one country. Instead, our efforts will focus on raising funds for necessary personal protective equipment for healthcare workers.
We all appreciate now, more than ever, the importance of having the equipment necessary to keep our patients and ourselves healthy. And, we've experienced what it's like when there is concern over there not being enough equipment for everyone. This is an opportunity to help close the gap a bit, ensuring that more people are safe from COVID-19 and able to access the essential care that we work hard to support every day.
