shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 28871

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page.

On Nov 3rd, 2024, I am participating in the TCS New York City Marathon to raise funds for a groundbreaking initiative – the construction of sub-Saharan Africa’s first children’s cancer hospital! I had initially signed up for the marathon but wasn’t selected as part of the lottery process. Everything happens for a reason, and I was connected with Shoe4Africa, learned more about their program and was excited to partner with them to raise money to support this project.

Shoe4Africa has already achieved a significant milestone by building East & Central Africa’s first Public Children’s Hospital, which has provided crucial care to over 1,000,000 children. Now, they aim to take it a step further by constructing a dedicated children’s cancer hospital!!! Through discussions with Shoe4Africa, I was informed that 9 out of 10 children diagnosed with cancer in this region do not survive. I couldn’t believe it. We take our healthcare (although expensive) for granted. I hope that by partnering with the team, I’m able to make a small dent in the amount needed to build this facility to provide hope to so many young people and their families.

I am reaching out to ask for your support in this endeavor. Regardless of the amount, 100% of your donation will go directly towards this cause. Seriously… no donation is too small. Even a small contribution can make a big difference. Together, we can make a substantial impact on the lives of children facing cancer in sub-Saharan Africa.

Thank you for considering my request, and I appreciate any support you can provide.
