shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 18276

Dear friends and family,

This November I am running for the children who can’t.  I will be running the 50th anniversary race of the TCS New York City Marathon to raise funds for East African children born into poverty and diagnosed with cancer. Nine out of 10 of these children will not survive (as compared to 1 out of 10 in the United States).  It is estimated 100,000 kids in sub-Saharan Africa are diagnosed each year; that means 90,000 deaths.

The charity I am running for, Shoe4Africa, has committed to building the 1st children’s cancer hospital in Sub-Saharan Africa (pop. over one billion people).  In 2015, they opened the 1st public children’s general hospital in East Africa that has treated over 650,000 needy kids to date. 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,
