Long Distance Runner Joins Ethiopia Outreach

 Dr. Jerry Spencer Announces Stan Cottrell…

We are excited to announce that international long distance runner Stan Cottrell has agreed to join us in our multifaceted outreach project in Hawassa, Ethiopia, May 28th – June 16th, 2013.

Mr. Cottrell is launching his six year Great Global Friendship Run from Ethiopia. His cherished appearance in the southern region of Ethiopia is a fantastic boost to the efforts that we have put together to impact this region in a major way.

Mr. Cottrell has run all over the world. We are honored that he is launching this ambitious campaign from the site of our festival in Hawassa. The overriding purpose of this worldwide friendship run is to call attention to the plight of orphan children in the world. Stan is convinced that calling attention to these millions of children can successfully rally international interest in coming to their aid. Allow me to quote Stan,
