Thank you for visiting my fundraising page.

I am really excited to share with you that I will be participating in the New York Marathon 2020. I have joined “Team Endurathon” and will be raising money to help open Shoe4Africa Juli Anne Perry Children Cancer Hospital!

I am continually impressed by Shoe4Africa’s commitment to improving lives in a region where so many people lack basic access to healthcare and education. They have minimal overhead expenses compared to many other non-profits, ensuring that all donations make a real difference. The hospital will have 100-150 room hospital and will save hundreds of children’s lives each year!

Being a cancer survivor myself, I find their work extremely valuable and necessary to build Shoe4Africa hospital. I am honored to support them while doing something I love… running. I feel so blessed to be able to run and plan to continue as long as I able.

As I have mentioned, on Nov 1st, 2020 I’m running the TCS New York City 50th Anniversary Marathon, and my fundraising target of $3,000. As I continue to ramp up my weekly mileage to get ready to run 26.2 miles through the five boroughs, I am hoping you’ll consider a tax-deductible donation to help me reach my goal and this life changing cause!

Please visit shoe4africa.org to learn more about this worthy cause and its current projects.

Thank you for your support.
