The girls of Daraja have always wanted to help out in fundraising for their school, but never knew how....until now.
Volunteers from the United States will run the 7 miles of the famous Bay To Breakers Race, and each runner is paired with one Daraja girl. The girls will be running in Kenya at the same time of the race, so while I will be running here to raise money for the school, they too will be running to raise funds. How cool is that!
I am running with Carla, a beautiful Form 1 girl who works hard in the classroom and who is extremely athletic on the soccer field and netball court. I got to teach and coach Carla during my month-long stay in Daraja, and could not be more proud to be running with her.
Thank you for your support and donations. Any size donation helps! The race is on May 15, but I will be taking donations up through June 11, my birthday.
