“If you want to run fast, run alone. If you want to run far, run together.” – Zambian Proverb

This coming November 6, 2016, the Ethiopians are going to have to worry about one more Kenyan at the NYC marathon. I am thrilled to be running the NYC Marathon with Team Shoe4Africa. Founded by runner & philanthropist Toby Tanser in 1995, Shoe4Africa is an organization devoted to improving the lives of East African people, especially women & children. What began as a project to provide shoes for athletes in Kenya has become a massive effort to develop health & education infrastructure in all of Sub-Saharan Africa.

– In East Africa, 1 in 8 kids are dying before their 5th birthday
– 80% won’t have seen a healthcare provider
– 2/3 of these deaths are said to be treatable/preventable

I am raising money to better equip Shoe4Africa Children’s Hospital in Eldoret, Kenya – the 1st free public children’s hospital in East and Central Africa. By providing healthcare to children and training to adults, the children’s hospital will create a strong foundation of health and self-sufficiency and will pave the way for a future where child mortality is the exception rather than the rule.

I would greatly appreciate any support you can offer! 100% of your donation will go towards the hospital. Please know that your support will help create a brighter future for the children of Africa. Thank you for supporting Shoe4Africa. Asante Sana
