Hi Friends and Family!

Guess who is running the NYC Marathon!? This Guy!

Please support me with any amount as I have signed up to run the 2023 TCS New York City Marathon to help African kids born into poverty who have contracted cancer. The odds are against these kids. 9/10 are dying in subSaharan Africa when diagnosed with cancers and a major reason why is because there is not a single children’s cancer hospital in the entire region of subSaharan Africa (a population of over one billion). In America, 1/10 kids die and 90% of those kids are healed in kids cancer centers.

The charity I am running for, Shoe4Africa (https://shoe4africa.org) is committed to building the 1st children’s cancer hospital in Sub-Saharan Africa (a 152-bed public facility). In 2015, they opened the 1st public children’s general hospital in East Africa which treats 400+ patients a day.

Please help me reach my fundraising goal.  Donations are tax deductible, and 100% of the funds raised will go directly to making this hospital a reality.

Thank you for caring to make the difference  Let’s Do It!
