shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 23973

Dear friends and family,

We are now in progress; I am part of the team bringing sub-Saharan Africa its first Children’s Cancer Hospital. I will be running the United Airlines Half to continue raising funds for East African children born into poverty and diagnosed with cancer in March. Nine out of 10 of these children will not survive (as compared to 1 out of 10 in the United States).

We must get this building up and running as soon as possible. The race is not finished yet.

The charity I am running for, Shoe4Africa, are building this project after completing a Children’s General Hospital. Not only are they helping children beat the odds, they are providing jobs to the community.  And, in 2010, Shoe4Africa opened their first school and now have around 1,600 kids getting free quality education in Shoe4Africa schools – 10 additional schools are expected to be completed by 2025.  What started as a mission to provide shoes to those in need has evolved into so much more. Please see their website for so much more detail on how Shoe4Africa is making meaningful changes in the world.

I am asking for your help to reach my fundraising goal.  Donations are tax deductible, and 100% of the funds raised will go directly to making this hospital a reality.  I appreciate anything you can give, every dollar makes a difference!

Thank you
