Erin & Lucas 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. ***

Erin & Lucas Details

Olana is an 8 years-old in first grade at the Lifesong for Orphan's School in Ziway, Ethiopia.  He enjoys playing soccer and his favorite subject is Oromofia (the local language).  He wants to be a teacher when he grows up. Many families in this region of Ethiopia are living in extreme poverty and many children are orphaned due to death and disease.  Without a quality education children have little to no hope of breaking the cycle of gripping poverty. At Lifesong Ethiopia, our hope is to not only provide education and food, but also share the love of Christ with students as we guide them into a hopeful future.


Hi, we are Lucas and Erin Sibley (mom) and on October 17 we will both be running the Kansas City Kid's Marathon (Lucas running the Kid's Marathon and Erin running the half marathon).  We do this for the 300+ kids waiting for sponsors at the ZAT schools in Ethiopia.   Will you help us by making a donation?  

Any donation (up to $500) will be matched in September.
