Damon 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.

Damon Details

Hola. My name is Damon, and I'm June's husband. I'm stupid, she's smart. I'm always wrong, she's always right. She's the best, I'm the worst. She's very good-looking, I'm not attractive.

I run because my friends run. I don't necessarily like to run, but I keep finding myself signing up for half-marathons and marathons, and have been for the past 6 years. I eat everything around me, too, so I don't even look like a runner! In fact, I don't even look like a cyclist, but I love to ride my bike. So… If I'm going to run, it might as well be for something good. Something great. Something like Lifesong Ethiopia. Yeah, so run I shall.

Would you consider donating $.50, $1 or even $20 per mile I run?
