One of the highlights of the day, though there were many, was the appearance by Zack from the Bring Zack Home campaign. I was most struck by his eyes that told the story of his journey, but was equally floored by his humble and magnetic charm that won the hearts of many. All proceeds from the event went to the campaign, towards their goal of raising Kshs 250 million to build a spinal cord injury rehabilitation centre in Kenya.
