Team U is a group of university students, faculty, staff, and community members who have taken it as their personal mission to improve global health care through running in events like the NYCRUNS Half Marathon. All of the money that we raise goes directly to the Shoe4Africa Children's Hospital in Kenya. Today, 1 in 7 children in sub-Saharan Africa die before the age of five, 80% of them without ever having seen a doctor. On February 23, we will run 13.1 miles in the hopes of changing those tragic statistics. Please consider donating to support our runners and our cause. Together, we are running for a better future.
