shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 1069

Hi friends,
Welcome to my fundraising page! This November, I will be running in the New York City Marathon (26.2 long miles!!) for a purpose beyond the personal and physical challenge that marathon running entails. I have run a number of marathons, but this is the first time that I have issued myself the duel challenge of covering the distance, while raising money for a most worthy cause!
It has been my pleasure to have known Toby Tanser for nearly 20 years, and in that time he has been a tireless ambassador to the worldwide sport of running. More importantly, he has created an organization to directly benefit Kenyan runners and children. Please take the time to read about Toby and the awesome work of shoe4africa.org

As a team member for the Shoe4Africa Marathon team, I have made the commitment to run in this event to help children in Africa who do not have access to even basic healthcare, and the funds the team raises will help to build the only public children’s hospital in East Africa. Shoe 4 Africa is a 501c3 organizations and all contributions are fully deductible with 100% of the proceeds going to the hospital.

Please help me to “be the difference”! Please click on the link below to learn more and help support this charity. My stretch goal with the help of family/ friends/ coworkers is to raise a minimum of $400 by race day. All donations are 100% deductible as this is a 501(c)(3) organization and will go directly to building the hospital.

Thanks in advance for your generous support. I will keep you posted on my training efforts as well as progress on the hospital campaign.

Best regards
James
