I’m excited to run the NYC Marathon this year for the first time. What makes it even more worth it, is running for a cause I believe in and that’s why I chose to run for Team Shoe4Africa. Shoe4Africa opened the first public kids hospital in East & Central Africa treating over 300 patients daily. They’ve built 5 public schools providing free education to 1,600 kids. All these accomplishments are working toward their vision, “that no child is denied basic healthcare or quality education. That the sick be tended to and the uneducated be taught. That there will be a world united that is inspired to wipe out poverty”

Now the next step is to build the first Kids Cancer Hospital in Subsaharan Africa. With 9/10 kids diagnosed with cancer and many dying in East Africa due to lack of treatment, this hospital would really make a difference!

We need your support so please, please, please donate to help build and save lives. 100% of your donations goes to build this hospital and treating kids. No donation is too small. Thank you in advance.
