shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 18945

Hi, I’m Gabriel Baeza, a Costa Rican living in NYC for the past 8 years. I’m beyond honored to be running this year’s marathon for the Shoe4Africa team.  I will be running the Golden 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) and I want to do something to change that stat.

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 much appreciation for your support of this worthy cause,
