BENEFITING: Daraja Education Fund

EVENT: Bay to Breakers 2012

EVENT DATE: May 20, 2012

THE STORY:

What is Daraja?
Daraja Academy is a boarding secondary school for Kenyan girls with top academic scores and exceptional leadership skills but no means to continue their education. The academy provides shelter, food, healthcare and counseling services. Daraja Academy changes girls' lives, but Daraja also changes the lives of the volunteers, employees and board members! Daraja has changed my life for the better!!

What is RACE for Daraja?
A team of advocates are racing in the Bay to Breakers in support of the 104 amazing girls on campus!! Each advocate is partnered with a Daraja student, my girl is Mesret!! 10,000 miles across the globe on the exact same day, Mesret and the 103 other Daraja girls will be participating in a Daraja version of Bay to Breakers called the “Lap-A-Thon.” The students will be running 28 laps, approximately the distance of the San Francisco Bay to Breakers. How cool is this fundraiser? Two countries racing for the same cause!!

Mesret!!!
Mesret is incredible - she is smart, committed, driven girl. Although I have not met Mesret in person, I know she and I have much in common. We both have analytical brains, she and I both are good in math, and we had to find a way on our own to support our dreams, each in our unique way. Mesret comes from the Marsabit and is supported by her single mother. I couldn't feel more blessed to have her as a running mate and the other beautiful girls of Daraja!!

If you sponsor me - all proceeds go to Moreen and the Daraja Academy.

Any Dollar Amount honestly makes a difference!!! $1, 10, 15 or $5 for each mile = $35 $104 for 104 girls on campus . .

Thank you for your support - it means the world to me, Mesret and the Daraja girls!
