shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 19539

Dear friends and family,

This November we are running for children who can’t.  We are 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).

The charity we are running for, Shoe4Africa, is committed to building the 1st children’s cancer hospital in Sub-Saharan Africa starting this December 24th.  In 2015, they opened the 1st public children’s general hospital in East Africa which treats 400+ patients a day.

Please help us reach our fundraising goal.  Donations are tax deductible, and 100% of the funds raised will go directly to making this hospital a reality to start saving lives.

With much appreciation for your support of this worthy cause,

Dan & Sigrid
