Dietz Kids Run For Team ZAT 2015

About Team ZAT 2015

Team ZAT is a group of kids and adults passionate about serving God and His people. This October we will be running various races in the Kansas City Marathon in order to raise money and awareness for orphans and vulnerable children 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

*** THIS JUST IN ***
We just had an anonymous donor step up and say they were so excited by all those Running for Purpose, that they wanted to MATCH every single donation given (up to this point) and until the end of October.  Folks, that means your $10 donation instantly turns to $20, $50 turns to $100 and so on (up to a total of $20,000).  Help spread this good news and let's see how many kids we can support. ***

Dietz Kids Run Details

Hi, We are the Dietz Kids (Lyla, Timothy, Biruk, Anna and Joseph).  On October 17th we will be running the Kansas City Kid's Marathon for Team ZAT. As some of you may know, we got to spend a week at the Lifesong for Orphans school in Ethiopia in March of this year.  During that time, we all made some pretty amazing friends - several of which have had a really rough start to life.  They are why we are running. 

Will you donate a few (or more) dollars to help support our friends (many pictured above) who are still waiting for sponsors?  It only costs $19/month to sponsor a child, and it is our goal as a family to raise enough money to sponsor 10 kids for the next year.  Will you help us?
