shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 25459

Dear Friends and Family,

As I take about 55,000 steps in the 2023 TCS New York City Marathon, I ask you to take just one step with me and donate what you can to Shoe4Africa. Our goal is to raise money to build a Cancer Hospital for children, many of whom are needlessly dying due to lack of proper treatment. Let’s join together to save the lives of these young people. Thank you so much for your support.

Your donation will help African kids born into poverty who have contracted cancer. 9/10 are dying in sub Saharan 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 sub Saharan Africa (a population of over one billion). In America, 90% of those kids are healed in childrens’ cancer centers. Shoe4Africa is going to bring the first children’s cancer hospital, a 152 bed public facility, to this region.

All donations are tax deductible under US law.

Thank you for caring to make the difference and for your support as I take on this challenge!
