Thanks for visiting my fundraising page! I’m honored to be a part of the Shoe4Africa charity team for the New York City Marathon again this year. I’ll be running the NYC Marathon for the tenth year in a row, which kind of blows my mind!

It’s the greatest race in the world and I’m so excited to experience it once again. I love to race this race, but running for a charity makes it all the more worthwhile. I feel continuously compelled to do whatever I can to help with these projects in Kenya, a part of the world that so needs our help. To have seen the progress that Shoe4Africa has made in the past decade gives me so much hope.

There is now a hospital where the once wasn’t one, and hundreds of children being treated there every day. And the work is never done. Please support me by giving whatever you can to contribute to Shoe4Africa’s mission to save children’s lives.
Last year, I raced Berlin and met my goal of breaking 3 hours. I still ran New York with a friend, but not for time. This year, I’m more excited than ever to get back on those streets and go for sub-3 again, this time in New York. Thank you in advance for your support. ❤
