Running to End Malaria

ELCA Malaria Campaign Pastor Cris will be running around Camp Lemonnier A LOT. Here's your opportunity to make him run even farther and to make a difference in the world as well.

Millions of people are affected each year by this completely treatable disease. Together we can make an impact. Pledge money today for each mile that he runs (probably about 750 over the course of a year). You can make a donation by writing a check to Zion; or through an online donation.
