We have joined forces with the Daraja Academy to help empower young women to change the world! Founded by a local, Bay Area couple, Daraja is a unique boarding secondary school for Kenyan girls with top academic ability and exceptional leaderships skills but no means to continue their education.
102 Bay to Breakers participants will be partnered with the 102 girls on campus. On the same day, both groups will be running the same distance to bring funding and awareness to girls education!
Touch The Sky has been partnered with a Daraja Academy student on campus who will be running 10,000 miles away in Kenya the very same day that we run the Bay to Breakers on May 20th!
We are extremely honored to be paired up with 14 year old, Fatuma. She is an AWESOME, FEARLESS, WITTY and FUNNY 11th grader. Fatuma lost her father when she was only 4 years old. With his death, her family struggled to make ends meet. Because of The Daraja Academy, Fatuma has a fighting chance to acheive her dream to be an Ambassador. Team Touch The Sky is not only honored, but INSPIRED and EMPOWERED by Fatuma and the entire Daraja Academy!
Please join us in celebrating the gift of LIFE and help us GIVE BACK!!!!
We have committed to raise a minimum of $750 for the 2012 class at Daraja Academy. We understand that times are rough for everyone, however, please find it in your heart to donate ANY amount to a GREAT and INSPIRATIONAL cause!!! Or better yet...join us at Bay to Breakers or sponsor your own girl =)
One more important thing - Team Touch The Sky was founded and created in honor of 2 important souls who have now become our ANGELS- Marissa Ann Krog and Pierre Francis Samson!! This is for you...We LOVE and MISS YOU BOTH!!
Live. Love. Give.
Team Touch The Sky
