Need a reason to go outside and make a difference?
The Race for Daraja is an international event that can be DONE FROM HOME. It is a celebration of girls education and supports the efforts of Daraja Academy in Kenya.
Here’s how it works: After signing up, you’ll be partnered with a Daraja girl in Kenya. Together, you will race 12 kilometers between April 1st and May 31st. It doesn’t matter if you’re running, walking, cycling, or kayaking. Just finish a 12k whenever and however you want at your own pace. Your Daraja partner will do the same in Kenya! Your support will motivate your partner to push past barriers during her race and in her life. Daraja Academy students come from abject poverty. They are often hardest hit when crisis such as drought or epidemics hit. Without your support, they WOULD NOT have the chance to get an education.
After registering, you’ll be given your very own fundraising page. It will look incomplete, but don’t worry! Within a couple business days, Daraja will fill up your fundraising page with the picture of your Daraja partner and her incredible story. Every dollar you raise goes to support her education. Plus, enjoy earning badges and prizes in friendly competition with other participants as we all work to make a difference.
