Cheyenne Valverde's Fundraiser:

Celtic Traverse: A run across Ireland to help Daraja Academy

BENEFITING: Daraja Education Fund

EVENT DATE: Jul 01, 2013

Cheyenne Valverde

THE STORY:

For the past 5 months I have been training to run the Celtic Traverse - a stage race across Ireland. Well, I am only running 25 kilometers a day and will move by bus to the next stage of the race, for a week.
I have mainly trained in the Marin Headlands and San Francisco hills during my weekday early morning or late day runs. While running, at times I have been listening to podcasts about technology, innovation and education. Other times I have been thinking about what has consumed most of my days for the past year: the creation of an accelerator and tech seed fund for Latin America.
I believe the greatest tool we can provide a boy or a girl to get out of a limited present and embrace a brighter future, is education. And this is the best investment society as a whole can do.
That's why I decided to raise money for Daraja Academy:
Daraya Academy is for Kenyan girls in poverty, girls that hit the wall and can't go to secondary school. It is a 4 year scholarship program for girls to learn, to see life beyond poverty.
"Daraja" means "bridge" in Swahili. Daraja Academy is a bridge from who the girls are now to who they can become.
