Iron Man Jeff For ZAT High School

About ZAT High School

In Ziway & Adami Tulu, Ethiopia, only 3% of girls and 4% of boys will attend secondary school.  That means that over 90% of these kids would not attend high school, let alone graduate!  We want to change that by giving our students the opportunity they would not normally have.  In partnership with Lifesong for Orphans, let's work together to build "our" ZAT students a high school.

Help us turn the dreams of Mesfin and his classmates into reality.

Iron Man Jeff Details

Hi, I'm Jeff and on June 8th I will be running/biking/swimming (surviving) the Lawrence Half Iron-Man.  Friends, that's a ...

1.2 mile swim

56 mile bike ride

13.1 mile run


Will you help sponsor me?  Sponsor $1 per mile I bike?  $20 for every mile I swim?  Or just donate gobs of money?  Every dollar I raise will go towards building a high school in Ethiopia.  Surviving this race will be so much easier, knowing all of YOU are supporting me and knowing all this hard work will go towards helping kids have hope for the future.

Thank you!!!  Every donation helps, no matter how big or how small.
