shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 28478

On March 17th, 2024, I am running the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon to raise funds for Shoe4Africa. Any funds raised will specifically go towards the construction of sub-Saharan Africa’s first children’s cancer hospital.

It’s disheartening to acknowledge that, currently, 9 out of 10 children diagnosed with cancer in this vast region do not survive. The need for urgent intervention is evident, and that’s why I am running for Shoe4Africa, an organization committed to making a difference.

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.

I would love for any support in this meaningful endeavor. Again, 100% of your donation, regardless of the amount, will go directly to this noble cause. Together, we can make a substantial impact on the lives of children facing cancer in sub-Saharan Africa.

Thank you very much!
