shoe4africa - make the difference!

Hi Friends and Family!

Please support me with any amount as I have signed up to run the 2022 TCS New York City Marathon to help African kids 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.  Will you 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.

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

Jane
