I'm running with Perpetua!

Perpetua and I are running 12 kilometers on opposite sides of the world in support of girls education. Any money we raise goes directly to Daraja Academy in Kenya and Perpetua's education. Thank you for your help! or as they say in Kenya, ASANTE SANA!

Perpetua is from Nakuru, where she lives with her mother and little brother. She has a little sister as well, but Perpetua hasn’t seen her in 5 years since their parents divorced. Perpetua’s mom works hard, but providing can be a struggle. She has to leave very early each morning and returns late so she can work any odd jobs she finds. Because of this schedule, Perpetua has acted like a mother to her little brother, making meals and taking care of the 1-room apartment they live in. Perpetua loves Daraja and is grateful for her scholarship because without it, there would have been no way for her to attend high school. One of her favorite quotes is, “A star cannot shine without darkness.” So she keeps persevering. Perpetua’s favorite subject right now is social studies and in her free time she likes playing sports. When she grows up she wants to become an environmental science professor.
