shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 28346

Erica and I will be running the United NYC Half Marathon to raise funds for Shoe4Africa. 100% of what you give will go directly to help build the first children’s cancer hospital in sub-Saharan Africa. The hospital will be located in Eldoret, Kenya (home region to many of the world’s greatest distance runners), adjacent to the general public children’s hospital Shoe4Africa completed in 2015 (one of only 3 public children’s hospitals in sub-Saharan Africa). Construction has just begun on the children’s hospital.

Shoe4Africa’s work is quite meaningful to us, as it relates to our deep interests in Africa, medicine, education, and running. Moreover, Shoe4Africa does an extraordinary job delivering aid to those who need it while relying on an exceedingly small portion of funds for overhead.

Thanks for anything you can contribute.

Eric (& Erica)

PS – For those for whom it matters, Shoe4Africa is a 501(c)(3) charity; all donations are tax-deductible.
