shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 24671

Dear friends and family,

Thank you greatly for your support with any amount as I raise money for Shoe4Africa to run in the 2023 TCS New York City Marathon.

NY will be my 10th marathon and feels fitting that I’m running for a charity again. I certainly have a greater sense of accomplishment when my passion for running and philanthropy collide. I found Shoe4Africa during my search for something different when deciding what to run for in New York. This time I’m running to raise funds for East African children born into poverty and diagnosed with cancer.

Shoe4Africa, works to improve survival rates in this area. It opened the first public children’s general hospital in east Africa in 2015 and is now committed to building the first children’s cancer hospital, a 152-bed facility, in Sub-Saharan Africa. Children in East Africa have a 1 in 10 chance of survival compared to 8-9 out of 10 in Europe and the US. We’re hoping to change those odds in favor of the kids that desperately deserve to live.

Donations are tax deductible, and 100% of the funds raised will go directly to making this hospital a reality.

With much appreciation for your support of this worthy cause,
