shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 25360

Dear family and friends, 

As some of you may already know, this year I will be running my first ever marathon on November 5th in New York City and I will be doing so to raise funds for Shoe4AFrica, an organization serving children in East Africa who were born into poverty and have been diagnosed with cancer. Since August 2015, Shoe4Africa has operated one of only three public children’s hospitals in Sub-Saharan Africa which currently treats more than 400 patients every day. As you may imagine, the hospital is constantly running at over-capacity and your contributions will directly help in providing more life saving care for these children. 

I am very grateful for any donations to help me reach my fundraising goal. Donations are tax deductible and the entirety of the funds raised will go to furthering Shoe4Africa´s mission.

Thank you so much in advance!
