shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 25173

Dear friends and family, 

This year I will be running in the 2023 NYC Marathon on November 5th with Shoe4Africa, a registered  501 C3 US charity, to help raise funds for East African children born into poverty and diagnosed with cancer. 

In 2015, Shoe4Africa opened the 1st public children’s general hospital in East Africa which treats 400+ patients a day. In December of 2022, Shoe4Africa passed the millionth patient treated at the hospital. The funds raised as part of this year will continue to go towards providing services to those that work at the hospital, as well as to further their vision-that no child is denied basic healthcare or quality education. 

Please help me reach my fundraising goal. Donations are tax deductible, and 100% of the funds raised will go directly to furthering their mission. 

Thank you so much in advance for your contributions! 

With love,
