Can you take up the challenge to run (walk or cycle) just 5km to support the health of mums around the world?
We believe every mother should be able to feel excitement not fear at the birth of their child.
But too many women are dying needlessly in childbirth because they don’t have access to the medical care they need to give birth safely. Many mothers find themselves walking over 5km to see a health professional during pregnancy and even whilst in labour. Some even give birth to their babies on the journey. Can you take up our virtual challenge to help them?
We’re encouraging our Fittamamma’s to improve their health, whilst supporting the health of mums around the world.
FittaMamma is working alongside our charity partner It Takes a Village to bring together parents, organisations and healthcare professionals who want to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. Together we are providing training for local health professionals, emergency transport for mothers in labour, as well as supporting health facilities in hard to reach areas across Africa, Asia and Latin America.
You can support by taking part in our Virtual Challenge.
Join the Fittamamma Virtual challenge and commit to walk, run or cycle 5km and support It Takes a Village. Not enough of a challenge for you? Commit to 10k or a half marathon to motivate yourself, improve your strength and fitness and support other mums around the world.
You can choose when you complete the challenge and how or where you do it – if you prefer to avoid the cold and use a treadmill or an exercise bike, that’s fine!
Set your goal and make your pledge to support the health of pregnant women around the world.
Together we can raise money to train health professionals to spot danger signs in pregnancy, provide emergency transport for mums in labour and support health facilities with lifesaving equipment.
