Support me to the Start and Finish line, to support a Child. 

I will run New York Marathon with much excitement on 5th of November 2017 for charity with team Shoe4Africa to support children, their health today and their protected future for a better life tomorrow, raising funds to put a smile on the little faces at Shoe4Africa Children’s Hospital. 

Shoe4Africa Children’s Hospital opened its doors in 2015 in Eldoret - Kenya, and is the only public children’s hospital in the entire region of East Africa. Its mission is to build and maintain public health, to attain the highest level of advanced paediatric safe, and effective medical and surgical care. A teaching hospital that will help empower, educate and enable the future of a healthy East Africa. 

In 2017 we are hoping to stock the Operating Theater with state of the art equipment, so life- saving operations can be performed, hoping to renovate the grounds to build a beautiful playground, as kids heal faster with some playing. Plus Playrooms house to compliment the playrooms we have on each floor inside the hospital. 

I ask, request and urge you to team up with me to make good health a reality to the little angels that will walk the doors of this hospital, to receive good health care and timely treatment, and reverse any condition that will possible in the hands of the Doctors that receive them. 

I, Mercy Onyango, do not take health for granted; having been a beneficiary of good medical health care when I needed it leading to a reversal of a kidney problem, and having supported a handful of children kidney patients with health care in the past. 

Please help me raise money to help equip and upgrade the Shoe4Africa Children's hospital, by donating any amount to this worthy cause, and be the voice for these kids. Your support and generosity is highly appreciated. 

RUN through me, for the little ones who cannot run for themselves by giving towards this cause.
