shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 19008

Dear friends and family,

This November I am running for children who can’t. I will be running the 50th anniversary race of the TCS New York City Marathon to raise funds for East African children born into poverty and diagnosed with cancer. Nine out of 10 of these children will not survive (as compared to 1 out of 10 in the United States).

The charity I am running for, Shoe4Africa, is committed to building the 1st children’s cancer hospital in Sub-Saharan Africa. 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.

I greatly appreciate your support, not only to help spur me on while training, but also to help this wonderful charity. With your help, it can be done!

Here is a snippet from their website https://shoe4africa.org/our-hospital/ that summaries what this wonderful bunch of people do more eloquently than I ever can.

Hope to see you out there on November 7th cheering me on and thank you so much for your support and generosity.

Salome
