Join Jhpiego’s 9th Miles for Mothers and "run the world" to bring lifesaving care to vulnerable communities. For 50 years, Jhpiego, a Johns Hopkins University affiliate, has been partnering with friends like you to save lives globally in places with limited health care.
In January 2022, Cyclone Ana caused extensive damage in Chikwawa District in Malawi, severely damaging St. Montfort Hospital and the Majete Health Center, leaving more than 103,000 mothers, fathers and children without access to basic health care services. With no roof, electricity and running water at these health centers, many will die of preventable diseases. Women with obstetric complications during birth or people with life-threatening conditions are being referred to facilities that are over an hour away due to poor road conditions and rough terrain, putting their lives further in danger.
You can help! Run or walk a 5k, 10k, half or full marathon with participants from around the world to raise funds to provide access to lifesaving health care to families in one of the poorest countries in the world. Given Malawi’s low life expectancy of 64 years and one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world, the restoration of these health centers is critical to the survival of families in this community.
Make a difference today by supporting Miles for Mothers to restore St. Montfort Hospital and the Majete Health Center. Help give access to health care to a community that has already lost so much.
You can fundraise for Malawi or you can join participants around the world by registering to run or walk a 5k, 10k, half, or full marathon at your distance either in person at the Baltimore Running Festival on October 15 or your own "course" from October 15-22, 2022. Encourage your friends, family, and colleagues to help save lives by running the world with you.
100% of all donations raised through Miles for Mothers will go directly to restore the St. Montfort Hospital and Health Center.
