shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 21508

Hi Friends and Family!

I’m running a marathon again so stocking back up on band aids 🙂 This time the big one, NYC! And doing it with an incredibly important charity. I have signed up to run with Shoe4Africa, a charity that helps African children born into poverty who have contracted cancer.  The odds are against these kids. 9/10 are dying in sub-Saharan Africa when diagnosed with cancers and a major reason why is because there is not a single children’s cancer hospital in the entire region of sub-Saharan Africa ( a population of over one billion).  In America, 1/10 kids die and 90% of those kids are healed in kids cancer centers.  Please help as I run for the charity that is going to bring the first children’s cancer hospital, a 152-bed public facility, to this region!!

Matching gifts welcomed, and all donations are tax deductible under US law.

Any bit helps, please give what you can.

Thank you so much for caring to make the difference – Let’s do it!
