I will be joining a team of 77 runners/cheerleaders representing the 77 wonderful girls of the Daraja Academy. Each person directly sponsors a specific girl that will be simultaneously running in Kenya as I participate in the Bay to Breakers 7.5 mile run/walk.
All proceeds go directly to my sponsored girl, Lillian Njoki, an incredibly smart, loving, and talented young girl I had the privilege of personally connecting with in Kenya last month!
Lilian is the second born in a family of 4 living with her single mother. Her parents divorced when she was 4 due to her father’s infidelity. The family has struggled over the years as they were dependent on only the mother’s income. Unfortunately, Lilian’s mother began to have back problems and she has been unable to work for some time. Because of an unfortunate incident involving her mother receiving a spinal injection and the poor treatment of the doctor, Lilian has a sincere desire to become a surgeon and treat her patients gently.
Lilian is an incredibly smart young woman. Among her Daraja classmates, she scored the highest on her 8th grade examination score. She is so happy to be at Daraja Academy. She always has a ready smile and is the first girl to introduce herself to any visitors to campus.
Please, please, please help support Lillian, Daraja, and myself for this great cause!!
