Krista 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.

Krista Details



Hey everyone! My name is Krista.  I am a 22 year old College student from Georgia, who in the last few years has been in college on a cheerleading scholarship in Kansas, lived in the Alaskan wilderness for 5 weeks for an internship, studied abroad in China and taught Chinese children English. I also recently earned a hard fought roster position on the Atlanta Steam LFL Women's football team, so that is a big part of my life. I am in the center for student leadership at KSU, and have been apart of many volunteer activities prior to this. I love giving back and I look forward to doing this race with one of the most influential figures in my life, Jesse Bussey, and also look forward to being a part of team that has desire to do something special and give back!

I am excited to be running the Chicago Marathon, my first ever marathon, for such a great cause. I cannot wait to see the children of Ziway and Adami Tulu receive the life sustaining support they so greatly need.

Would you consider donating $.50, $1 or $2 per mile I run?

I am so thankful for your support. It will not only change lives in Ethiopia, but it will keep me racing to that 26th mile.
