shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 18160

Dear friends and family,

I will be running the 50th anniversary  TCS New York City Marathon. This is my second New York City Marathon and I am super excited to run through the greatest city in the world!

Most people who run the Marathon use the opportunity to raise funds for important causes and this year I am raising money for Shoe4Africa. This wonderful organization helps East African children born into poverty and diagnosed with cancer. Nine out of 10 of these children will not survive (compared to 1 out of 10 in the United States).

Shoe4Africa is committed to building the 1st children’s cancer hospital in Sub-Saharan Africa. In 2015, they opened the 1st public children’s general hospital in East Africa which treats 400+ patients a day.

Please help me reach my fundraising goal.  Donations are tax deductible, and 100% of the funds raised will go directly to making this hospital a reality.

With much love and appreciation for your support of this worthy cause,
