Welcome to my fundraising page!

I am thrilled to be running my fourth NYC Marathon on November 3rd while helping to raise funds to build a new children’s cancer hospital in Kenya for Shoe4Africa.

Founded by runner & philanthropist Toby Tanser in 1995, Shoe4Africa is an organization devoted to bettering the lives of East African people, especially women & children. What began as a project to provide shoes for athletes in Kenya has become a massive effort to develop health & education infrastructure in all of Sub-Saharan Africa.

Currently, Shoe4Africa is in the process of raising funds to build the first ever public children’s cancer hospital in all of East Africa, where it is desperately needed as 9/10 children diagnosed with cancer are dying in the region. 100% of your contributions goes toward saving kids lives.

Thank you for your support!
