Riston For Team ZAT 2016

About Team ZAT 2016

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

Riston Details

Naol is 6 years-old and in the Lower Kindergarten class at the Lifesong for Orphan's School in Ziway, Ethiopia.  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.

 My name is Riston and on October 15 I will be running the Kansas City Kid's Marathon in order to help ensure that Naol and others like him can continue to go to school, get fed and hear about God's love.  Will you help me by making a donation?  No amount is too small.
