I'm running with Susane!

BENEFITING: Daraja Education Fund
EVENT DATE: May 15, 2016
At my school, Drake High School, I am part of a club which works with an organization called Daraja Academy, an all-girls school in Nanyuki, Kenya. Daraja means bridge in Swahili, and Daraja Academy is a real bridge for many girls in Kenya who do not have access to an education like their male counterparts. This school helps girls achieve their dreams, and I am proud to support it.
On May 15th, I will be participating in Bay to Breakers in San Francisco, along with the rest of our Drake Daraja Club. At the same time, the girls from Daraja Academy will be running a race of their own in Nanyuki. All proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to funding the education of Susane, a junior at Daraja, and making sure she gets to continue to follow her dreams of becoming a lawyer.
Thanks so much for your donation!
