Race Around the World

Each year churches in the states organize a Fun Run/Walk to raise money for Children of Zion Village.  The organizing church is Mt Zion UMC in Bel Air Maryland.  They let us and others know when their race is and then we hold the event either when a Mt Zion team is there or close to the date they are organizing in the states.  So, the children from Zion run/walk/be carried, around a track.  At each lap, they receive a small piece of candy to keep them motivated and also so we can count their laps.  At the end, the ones with the most laps get a lunch out in town at the fast food place called the Hungry Lion.  Then we send the lap numbers back to the states and people pledge toward a child a certain amount of money per lap before they know how many laps were completed.  It is really fun on both side of the water!

Ready.  Get set.  GO!!!!
