shoe4africa - make the difference!

Hi Friends and Family!

I have signed up to run my sixth marathon, and it will be at the 2022 TCS New York City Marathon. I need your help, my team is running for a greater purpose than just to collect a medal at the finish line and say “we ran a marathon,” My team is running to build the very first children’s cancer hospital in sub-Saharan Africa. For over one billion people they don’t have a cancer hospital for kids and that is why 9/10 kids who are diagnosed with cancers die over there.

In America, where we have lots of kids’ cancer hospitals, the odds are the exact opposite, 90% survive. We need to build this hospital!  Every dollar you donate will go directly to this project.  I am not asking for myself, I am asking for the African kids who have been born into poverty and then contract cancer.

Matching gifts welcomed, and all donations are tax deductible under US law.  Please donate here, or you can also make out a check to Shoe4Africa and hand it to me, if that is easier.  Your donation will count.  This marathon is not going to be easy for me, but I am doing it for the kids!

Thank you for caring to make the difference – Let’s do it!
