Carla For Lifesong Ethiopia

About Lifesong Ethiopia

Team ZAT is a group of people brought together by two common interests:  A love (or toleration) of running and a desire to help the least of these.  We will all be running the Chicago Marathon on October 13, 2013 to raise money and awareness for children in need within the communities of Ziway and Adami Tulu, Ethiopia (Ziway + Adami Tulu = ZAT).  Your donation will go towards the Ethiopia child sponsorship program, providing education, medical care, two meals per day, love and HOPE to children enrolled in the Ziway/Adami Tulu schools.  Not only will kids be physically cared for, but they will be lovingly taught of their great worth in God's eyes.  Help us feed families spiritually through the message of hope and empowerment, aiming to keep families together in Ethiopia.


Rest assured knowing that 100% of your tax deductible donation goes directly to work in Ethiopia.  No administrative fees will be deducted and, due to a generous corporate sponsor, even Paypal fees will be covered.

Carla Details



Hi, my name is Carla.  I will be running the Chicago Marathon in October to raise money for orphans and vulnerable children in Ethiopia.  I am so excited to use my passion for running to bring life and awareness to kids in need on the other side of the world.  I have roots in Chicago, and this will be the second time I've ran a marathon in my 'home' town.  Sooo very excited to be running this race for a PURPOSE. 

I know God has big plans for kids in the Ziway and Adami Tulu schools and I am excited to be a part of His plan to minister to them.


Would you consider donating $.50, $1 or $2 per mile I run?


I am so thankful for your support. It will not only change lives in Ethiopia, but will likely be what keeps me racing to that 26th mile
