shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 21529

Hi Friends and Family!

If you know me, you know I love to run. You also know that I have a young daughter and work in the healthcare industry. This November I have the opportunity to run to help children. It was an easy choice to join Shoe4Africa, but I need your help.

I’m going to run the 2022 TCS New York City Marathon to help African kids born into poverty who have contracted cancer. 9/10 kids are dying in sub-Saharan Africa when diagnosed with cancers, as compared with 1/10 in America. Why the difference? There are children’s cancer centers in America.

Shoe4Africa is a charity committed to building the FIRST children’s cancer hospital in sub-Saharan Africa. A 152-bed public facility.

Please help me reach my fundraising goal. All donations are tax deductible and 100% of the funds raised will go directly to making this hospital possible.

Love and appreciation for you,
