shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 1078

Hi friends,

welcome to my fundraising page!

I am thrilled to be running the TCS NYC Marathon on November 6th, 2016 with Team Shoe4Africa.

Founded by runner & philanthropist Toby Tanser in 1995, Shoe4Africa is an organization devoted to bettering 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.

Currently, Shoe4Africa is in the process of building the first ever public teaching children’s hospital in all of East Africa. By providing healthcare to children and training to adults, the 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.

…and if you feel motivated to donate funds you can do so right here! Every little bit means the world to me and will help create a brighter future for the people of Africa.

Thank you so much for your support!!!
