I'm running with Lucy!

Lucy 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 Lucy's education. Thank you for your help! or as they say in Kenya, ASANTE SANA!

Lucy is from Nyeri and is the first of 3 kids. Their family was doing alright financially until her mom was in an accident. Her mom was in the hospital for 6 months and then afterward had to return every other week for costly care. Lucy’s father did the best he could, but one income wasn’t enough for the family, and they often went to bed hungry. When Lucy graduated from 8th grade, she didn’t know how she could possibly go to high school with no ability to pay school fees. She was so grateful for the chance to come to Daraja and calls it a light in her life and a bridge to her destiny. Lucy’s favorite subject is English, and she loves debate club. Someday she wants to be a lawyer and fight corruption.
