<-------- Pictures above of Euphrasia Atieno
The Daraja community is running in the 100th Anniversary Bay to Breakers event on May 15th with a team of 77 people (to match the 77 girls at the Daraja Academy). I will be running the 12k event in San Francisco, on the same day Euphrasia will be running a 12K in Nairobi Kenya.
Euphrasia is the Daraja Academy student that I am sponsoring. She is a 16 year old Freshman that comes from an area in Western Kenya near the Ugandan border. She is one of 9 children being raised by her mother, and the Daraja Academy has selected her as a student because of her intellectual talent and desire to make a difference in her community. I would like to support Euphrasia in achieving her goals by raising as much money as i can so that she can get a great education at the Daraja Academy.
Please sponsor me in the Daraja Race for 77 any donation would be appreciated. Thank you!
