Thank you for visiting my Fundraising Page!

I am extremely excited to represent team Shoe4Africa in the 2017 New York City Marathon on November 5th. Two years ago I ran my first Marathon for Shoe4Africa and completed the New York double, running both the New York City Marathon and Half Marathon, in an effort to raise vital funds for the first children’s hospital in Eldoret, Kenya. My time spent in Tanzania forever changed my life and I vowed to always give back to the people and community who brought me so much joy. I am truly honored to again represent this incredible charity and to continue on this endless journey to promote health, happiness and education for African children and their families. By contributing to my fundraising page you will be helping to sustain the hospital’s daily operational costs and patient care, while simultaneously providing jobs and training to numerous community members. You will also be supporting the construction of new projects such as, a music therapy room, play center and educational technology building, while additionally continuing the longevity of past projects including the community garden, hospital kitchen and internal school. I am very humbled and grateful to be given another opportunity to spread the hope and inspiration behind Shoe4Africa’s mission. Thank you in advance for your support of my individual journey and your personal financial contribution that will help carry on this very important work.

Together we can and WILL change the lives of many East African children!
