shoe4africa - make the difference!

I am running the New York Marathon in November. This is my first ever marathon and after months of strenuous training I am so excited to join 50,000 people from all over the world and run 26.2 in the greatest city.

Over the course of this run, I will pass a handful of the finest hospitals and schools in the world. It strikes me how fortunate we are to have such wonderful institutions on top of one another. It also makes me think how others around the world aren’t so fortunate.

For instance, in large portions of Africa no such schools or hospitals exist and if they do, they are often many miles away and terribly overcrowded.

This contrast inspired me to run in honor of and raise money for Shoe4Africa. This fantastic organization is focused on education, health and empowerment in East Africa.

With that in mind, I ask you to join me in supporting this great cause and donating via the link below.

Thank you in advance for your support!!
