SUPPORT FOR EIKON IN ETHIOPIA
Eikon is a nine-month internship program for college-age students, equipping them to be effective leaders and change- agents in their community. Eikon is a part of Calvary Church, a congregation that has been committed to mending our local and global communities for over 40 years.The sixth annual Eikon 5K Run will take place on April 27, 2013. This 5K is a fundraising event to support Eikon students’ travel to and work in Ethiopia.
Students will partner with Beza International, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing practical help for needy groups in Addis Ababa through education, job skills training, and community development.
Your generosity, support and encouragement will help make that event possible, and make the 2013 Eikon 5K the best race yet!
