Hi my name is Jacques.

I discovered my passion for running in 2017, and have since completed 2 Comrades Marathons.

 My dream is to run the 2020 TCS NYC Marathon. To realise this dream I have joined the Shoe4Africa running team. In doing so I have the opportunity to help the kids of Africa by raising funds through my running.

Nine out of ten children diagnosed with cancer are dying in East Africa. We have set a goal to build the first Kids Cancer Hospital in Sub Saharan Africa. Shoe4Africa is making a great impact on the health and wellness of the people in this region.

Please, donate whatever you can. 100% of your donation is going to build this Cancer Hospital.

Shoe4Africa is a registered 501(c)(3) founded by friend, runner and philanthropist Toby Tanser. The charity devotes funds on improving health and education infrastructure in East Africa.

Forever running – Jacques
