Dear Supporters,

This November 7th, I am running for children who can’t.  I will be running the 50th anniversary race of the TCS New York City Marathon to raise funds for East African children born into poverty and diagnosed with cancer. Nine out of 10 of these children will not survive (as compared to 1 out of 10 in the United States).  Texas Children’s Global Hope program estimate over 100,000 kids will get cancer in sub-Saharan Africa this year.

The charity I am running for, Shoe4Africa, is committed to building the 1st children’s cancer hospital in Sub-Saharan Africa.  In 2015, they opened the 1st public children’s general hospital in East Africa which treats 400+ patients a day. Please help me reach my fundraising goal.  Donations are tax deductible, and 100% of the funds raised will go directly to making this hospital a reality.

With appreciation for your support of this worthy cause,
