shoe4africa - make the difference!

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page.

On Nov 3rd, 2024, I am participating in the TCS New York City Marathon to raise funds for the construction of sub-Saharan Africa’s first children’s cancer hospital. 9 out of 10 children diagnosed with cancer in this region do not survive. Running for Shoe4Africa allows me to help raise money to help create and maintain these kinds of medical necessities.

Shoe4Africa has already achieved a significant milestone by building East & Central Africa’s first Public Children’s Hospital, which has provided crucial care to over 1,000,000 children. Now, they aim to do more by constructing a dedicated children’s cancer hospital.

In the past year I found a new love for long distance running and was excited to find a foundation that I feel good getting behind and running for. I can’t wait to finish the NYC marathon knowing it is not only to complete a personal goal, but also to help aid financial assistance for this cause.

I am reaching out to ask for your support in this new endeavor. 100% of your donation, regardless of the amount, will go directly to this cause. I’m excited to raise a donation amount that can help get this project started and finished.

Thank you for considering this fundraising opportunity, and I appreciate any support you can provide!
