shoe4africa - make the difference!

Family and Friends,

On November 5th 2023 I’m honored to be running the New York City Marathon for team Shoe4Africa – an organization devoted to supporting East African children born into poverty.

It would be incredible if you could support me by donating to their cause in any amount!

As a father of two kiddos I’m especially proud to be running for Shoe4Africa. The organization was started by runners and began their efforts in East Africa donating shoes in the 1990’s, grew to building 6 public schools (currently serving 2000+ kids) and in 2015 opened the first public pediatric general hospital in East Africa which treats 400+ patients a day.

Their next goal is to build a first of its kind children’s cancer hospital in Sub-Saharan Africa. This 152-bed public facility will give kids a fighting chance in an area where the resources to treat cancer are not readily available.

Donations to this 501 (3c) charity are tax deductible and 100% of the funds raised will go directly to helping kids. All donations are welcome and no donation is too small.

Thank you for your time and I deeply appreciate your support in making the miles count!

Geordie
