shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 8703

Hello and welcome to my fundraising page!

I am very excited to be running the NYC Marathon November 5, 2017 with Team Shoe4africa!

I have been a competitive swimmer for the past sixteen years of my life. That journey came to an end last March when I competed in my fourth and final year of eligibility for the University of Kentucky. After swimming ended I wanted to find something that was going to challenge me and give me a goal to work towards. During my time at Kentucky I was lucky enough to travel with the athletic department to Ethiopia for a service trip. That experience forever changed the way I look at the world and I want to continue to help the less fortunate.

That is why I decide to run with Team Shoe4africa. This organization started by providing shoes but now is capable of so much more. Shoe4africa helps the world’s most vulnerable children in East Africa by uplifting health and education through building public schools and hospitals. With your support and generous donations Shoe4africa is in the process of building the first ever public teaching children’s hospital in all of East Africa.

As a member of Shoe4Africa running team this year, I am committed to raise a minimum of $3,000 for an opportunity to run in the NY Marathon. Please support me and my cause by making your generous donations right here, any amount is welcome and 100% tax deductible.

Thank you for your support,
