Get ready... get set... REMIX!

Miles for Mothers is going GLOBAL! Support health care workers on the frontlines of COVID-19 and mothers and families around the world by joining Jhpiego, a Johns Hopkins University affiliate, in this year’s global Miles for Mothers Remix.


At Jhpiego, we believe that where a woman lives should not determine if she lives. We’re so passionate about women’s health that we’re willing to run for it!

In 2017, we raised funds to make major improvements and upgrades to the maternity ward at the Kribi Clinic in Cameroon. In 2018, we came together to support renovations and other lifesaving improvements to the cyclone-ravaged Centre Hospitalier Universitaire in Madagascar. Last year, we ran, walked and cheered to raise funds for medical equipment and supplies to help address South Sudan’s severe shortage.

Get involved this year!

Get moving for personal protective equipment (PPE) by running or walking your distance on your own “course” and at your pace on the week of October 17, 2020. You can register as a runner, walker or sponsor, or donate directly to support Miles for Mothers Remix. Create your own Miles for Mothers Remix fundraiser to encourage your friends, family and community to help make a difference.

Money raised through Miles for Mothers Remix will go directly to buying lifesaving supplies for health care workers, mothers and families and providing education on the use of personal protective equipment to prevent the spread of COVID-19, such as:

  • Medical-grade masks, including N95s
  • Disposable gloves
  • Surgical gowns
  • Safety goggles
  • Cloth masks
  • Hand sanitizer

I don't usually run, but I will for a good cause! #MilesForMothers is mixing it up this year and going virtual to help equip nurses and midwives with the PPE they need to continue safely providing care during COVID-19.

Are you already walking or running to stay healthy right now? Why not get moving for a cause? Join #MilesForMothers Remix and our 2020 virtual walk/run to help provide PPE to health workers.

I signed up to do a virtual run/walk with #MilesForMothers Remix the week of October 17 to help raise funds and equip nurses and midwives around the globe with PPE during COVID-19. Join me: give.jhpiego.org/m4m2020

#MilesForMothers is a team effort, and this year, it’s going global. I’m joining the virtual event and running/walking in (fill in YOUR LOCATION) on October 17!

I ran/walked in #MilesForMothers last year to support South Sudan. This year, I’m joining the #MilesforMothers Remix virtual movement to help health workers around the globe get the PPE they need!

It’s that time of year again—I’m running/walking/fundraising for #MilesForMothers! This year, we’re on the #Move4PPE to help nurses and midwives around the world who don’t have access to the basic lifesaving supplies they need to continue safely providing care during #COVID19.

Raise Your Voice for Nurses and Midwives

As a nurse/midwife, I know how critical PPE is, and there are nurses and midwives around the world who have none. I’m running/walking/fundraising for #MilesForMothers Remix to equip nurses and midwives with the PPE they need. Join me and support health workers around the world in safely providing care. give.jhpiego.org/m4m2020

Nurses and midwives are continuing to care and fight for their patients and communities with what PPE they have, but supplies are in short supply (and high demand). That’s why this year, I’m joining #MilesForMothers Remix to equip health workers with PPE they need!

Health workers around the world are risking their lives for others—the least we can do is equip them with the PPE they need to stay safe. That’s why I’m joining #MilesForMothers Remix: to supply nurses and midwives around the globe who have none and deserve more. Join me! give.jhpiego.org/m4m2020

Nurses, midwives and health workers around the world are putting their lives on the line to continue providing care during a pandemic. But so many still don’t have the basic PPE they need to stay safe and healthy. That’s why I’m joining Miles for Mother Remix and getting moving for PPE!

Nurses and midwives see it all, but during a global pandemic, having to reuse or craft your own PPE—or even continue to provide care without ANY PPE—is not OK! That’s why we’re supporting #MilesForMothers in its virtual race to help equip health workers with PPE who have none. Sign up as walker or runner: give.jhpiego.org/m4m2020

Nurses and midwives not only show up for their patients and community but also for each other! We’re joining #MilesForMothers Remix to support our fellow nurses and midwives around the world to get them the PPE they need during this pandemic.

Move for PPE

#Move4PPE. Get running, walking or moving (however you want) with #MilesForMothers Remix and help health workers around the world get the PPE they need. give.jhpiego.org/m4m2020
