We'd love you to join a worldwide community of Smashfest Queens in celebrating Mother's Day with a smashfest to raise funds for Dr. Shalon's Maternal Action Project . Last year's Mother's Day Smashfest virtual running race was such a success that we've decided to make this an annual tradition....Because if you are anything like us, kicking off Mother's Day with a good hard run is a dream come true--and even better if we can unite our efforts for a worthy cause.
This year we have chosen Dr. Shalon's Maternal Action Project as the recipient of our Mother's Day fundraising efforts, in honor of all the mothers who tragically don't have the privilege of raising their babies. According to the CDC, Black mothers are dying at 3-4x the rate of white mothers, and we've been haunted by stories like that of Dr. Shalon Irving . We are hoping through our Mother's Day Smashfest to be able to make an impactful donation towards her foundation's mission "to increase awareness of the Black maternal health crisis and develop and promote evidence-based strategies that improve health outcomes for Black birthing people and families."
