Hello Family, Friends, and fellow Athletes!

I have decided to pursue a bucket list wish of mine this year…running the New York City Marathon! But I want to use this goal to serve a higher purpose, so I have partnered with Shoe4Africa. I am asking your help in raising funds for this amazing charity!

Shoe4Africa’s Mission is “working with donors, partners, & advocates to save and empower African kids lives & empowering Women through highly cost effective, scaleable proven methods.”  Sub-Saharan Africans have the worst health in the world. One in six children fail to reach their 6th birthday, and most die from treatable/preventable diseases.  There are only 3 public dedicated children’s hospitals in this region of 1 billion people, and Shoe4Africa built and supports the hospital in Kenya! Fund raising is now underway for a dedicated Children’s Cancer hospital!

Shoe4Africa also builds schools that are free and fully government accredited, meaning access for every child no matter race, religion, sex, or income. The schools and built and run by the community, empowering those families for generations to come.

My minimum fund raising goal is $3,000, but there is no limit to what we can do! Please work with me to positively impact the lives of children and their families for years to come!  All contributions are tax deductible.  PLEASE make sure to click the red “donate” button to the right or below this text to assure your donation goes  through this specific fund raising page!

God Bless,

Mary Ellen
