Daraja Academy is one of East Africa's first free high schools for girls. I spent a month living and volunteering on campus last summer. See my Video Scrapbook on the left hand side of this page!
Bay To Breakers is a 7.46 mile run that takes place in San Francisco each year. Runners start on the eastern edge of the city, on the San Francisco Bay, and run west across the city to the ocean breakers on the western edge of the city. Last year Daraja supporters created a team and ran the race together, in order to raise funds for Daraja. Together, they raised $50,000+ for Daraja. It was Daraja's biggest fundraiser of the year.
We hope to raise even more money this year! I have joined the team. If I am unable to run the race in San Francisco then I will be participating on race day, Sunday May 20, by running 4 trail miles and then swimming 4 miles (288 laps) in the pool!
Thanks in advance for supporting Daraja and my athletic endeavors! In order to count towards my total please make a donation before Sunday, May 20, 2012.
