shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 20881

Dear Friends and Family,

On March 20th, I am running the 2022 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon with my Smithsters, Madeleine and Emily. I am running to raise funds for children born into poverty and diagnosed with cancer in Africa. 9 out of 10 of these children will not survive (as compared to 1 out of 10 in the United States).

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.

Thank you,
Emily
