shoe4africa - make the difference!
Dear Friends and Family,
Thank you for visiting my 2021 NYC Marathon page. For my 11th 26.2mile run through the city streets, I will be dedicating my efforts to raising awareness and money to construct Kenya’s first public Children’s Cancer Hospital. This project will help to prevent 9 out of 10 kids from dying when diagnosed with cancers in Africa. Shoe4Africa, an organization I have been closely involved with for over a decade, has built six schools, founded East & Central Africa’s 1st Public Children’s hospital that treats over 120,000 kids each year, and we run a women’s empowerment project servicing 50-100 women who are domestic violence sufferers, and growing/providing nutrition for the schools/hospital. Thank you so much for your support, and I will see you at the finish line!
David, Zeynep, and Ayla
