shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 19447

Dear friends and family,

This November I am running for 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).

The charity I am running for, Shoe4Africa, is committed to building the 1st children’s cancer hospital in Sub-Saharan Africa. In 2015, they opened the 1st public children’s general hospital in East Africa which treats 400+ patients a day. Please help me reach my fundraising goal. For my American friends: donations are tax deductible. 100% of the funds raised will go directly to making this hospital a reality.

BONUS: Since I recently got my pilot license (#humblebrag), and to make things even more exciting, on top of supporting an awesome cause I’m gonna offer a free sightseeing flight (needs to be in the US) to my:

– top supporter (highest dollar-value donation)

– one, randomly selected donor, other than the top supporter

Thank you for considering supporting me and Shoe4Africa, it means a lot!
