A big shout out to the honorary chair of the Manchester Road Race, Sally Kipyego, who has been an ambassador with us since 2011, or 10. Sally just directed a $600 grant from the kind folks at the event to Shoe4Africa to help support our All4Running kids sports program in Iten, Kenya.

Sally won this prestigious Connecticut race not once but twice…around the time she was winning World Championship and Olympic medals.

Congrats Sally on having your third child this week and for always, as you say, ‘Having Shoe4Africa in your corner.’

Our 4th Shoe4Africa school, in Kaptiony, Kenya, is named after Sally and was opened in 2014 meaning hundreds of local kids have benefitted from this educational facility. If you ever want a story of inspiration and hope look up Sally’s heartbreaking childhood story concerning her late brother, Elias as reported on @espn

Sally has a nursing degree from Texas Tech, and as they put it, ‘she’s running for a cause.’ Thanks Sally!
