Jeff & Josh 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.

Jeff & Josh Details


Hi, my name is Jeff and I am running the Kansas City Marathon along with my buddy Josh.  As you can see, we are manly men to the max.  However, we both have a soft heart for the least of these, which led us both to accept this crazy challenge ...


If we can raise over $1,500 in total donations for Lifesong for Orphans before Saturday, us manly men will run the Kansas City Marathon (all 26.2 miles) in pink shirts, tutus, tights and wings.  No joke!


So, if you love Ethiopia, if you have a heart for supporting families in need, a love for God's children or just want to see us deeply humiliated ... click the yellow button below and give.  Share with your friends and you can all work together for our eternal embarrassment.
