shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 25159

Hi everyone! Many of you have been watching me grow in my marathoning (and fundraising) journey over the last few years and I am so incredibly appreciate of your support! I am now running the 2023 New York City Marathon this fall for an incredibly meaningful cause that is near to my heart. Shoe4Africa is an organization that focuses on providing health, education, nutrition, and empowerment opportunities for kids and women in East Africa. For those of you that know me, you know how passionate I am about global health and providing care for those in developing countries in Africa.
Ever since my two year Peace Corps Service in Senegal, West Africa, and my continued work as a registered nurse at MGH, my passion for global health has grown stronger and stronger, to the point where I went back to school to get my masters in public health (currently halfway through!). When looking into charities to run for, Shoe4Africa immediately spoke to me – what better way to combine my passions of running and global health than to tackle this marathon for Shoe4Africa. Running for such an important cause will certainly put meaning and motivation to my miles.
But I can’t do it alone! I need your help to get me to the starting line on November 5th and raise enough funds to provide care to women and children in East Africa. I encourage you to come on this journey with me and make a huge difference in someone’s life – any donation amount will help!

As always, thank you so much for the love and support! I am so unbelievably lucky that I am in a position in my life that I get to do this and that I have the best support crew to allow me to do so. Lets go NYC 2023!!
