shoe4africa - make the difference!

Why am I running? I have always wanted to run a marathon. I played collegiate division one lacrosse and running has always been a big part of my life. I have done a bunch of half marathons but never a full and knew that when it came time to run a full I wanted to run on behalf of an amazing cause. This is why I’m so excited to run in half of Shoe4Africa!

From Shoe4Africa, “We’re proud and grateful that Sarah has chosen to take the hardest event in the Olympic calendar, and has pledge to raise funds to help us build the first pediatric cancer hospital in sub-Saharan Africa.  Head on, she’s addressing the fact that 9/10 kids diagnosed with cancers are dying in this region, and by us building this facility, we are making change for the sick kids of East Africa.”
