I am running Bay to Breakers 2012 to raise money for Daraja Academy in Kenya. Daraja provides education and shelter for girls who otherwise may not have had the opportunity to attend school. I am running for Mary N. Mary is 18 and in her first year at Daraja. She wants to become a nurse. Mary took the 8th grade exam three times in hopes that her family could pay for her to attend school. Daraja found Mary and made her wish a reality. While I run Bay to Breakers in San Francisco, Mary N. and other Daraja girls will be running in Kenya.
I would like to raise money for Mary and other girls at Daraja in order to support them as they continue their education at Daraja.
Thanks for thinking about helping the Daraja Academy and Mary.
