Leigh Pomerantz's Fundraiser:

Leigh and Faustine's Race For Daraja

Leigh's Photo

THE STORY:

My name is Leigh Pomerantz and I am participating in the Bay to Breakers Race on May 20th, 2012. Along with a few other students from my school, Marin Academy, I am running on behalf of Daraja Academy. Daraja Academy is a secondary school for girls in Kenya, Africa. It is a school for young girls and women to continue their education beyond what the average girl in Kenya would achieve. I am partnered with Faustine, a ninth grade girl who attends Daraja Academy. She will be running the same distance in Kenya, as I will be running during the Bay to Breakers in San Francisco. I am very excited to run on behalf of Faustine and Daraja Academy because as Faustine says, "My tribal culture is very bad because they like giving out their daughters to get married to a local man or a person who is not educated, for the purpose of getting a dowry." Had she not been accepted to Daraja Academy, Faustine says that she would be taking care of her younger siblings or married to an elder man. The Bay to Breakers race is my first step in learning Faustine's "Daraja Family Behavior" whereby everyone is treated equally, fairly and with love. Thank you for your support
