My name’s Dan. I’d like to live in Africa when I grow up. I love life and I believe in people.
I visited Zambia with some friends in 2008, and we had the chance to support a neat street boys mission and got to know some incredible folks.
There also I met a man named Stan Mulenga, and life has never been quite the same.
Stan runs a group called Christian Aid Ministries. CAM is grassroots. CAM is community based. CAM is Zambian. They run a synergistic wellness program that provides poor communities around Kitwe, Zambia nutritional, medical, and spiritual support geared towards the treatment of HIV and TB. They treat everyone regardless of faith, family, or background. And they make people smile.
With the support of our close friends and families, I went to China in 2010 and hiked in the Gobi Desert in honor of Stan. Together we raised enough money to build Stan a brand new office and all the tools and equipment he needs to run his awesome charity and connect with the Zambian government and numerous NGOs!
That was the Walk of Lions I
In Spring 2012, I found a new place to go walking… and a new goal for Stan
The Walk of Lions II
The Gobi desert was a beautiful place… but it reminded me a lot of SoCal, where I happened to be living
High desert and pretty breathtaking mountains. And this thing called the Pacific Crest Trail running right through my backyard
So I went on another little foot trip through some mountains, and that was the Walk of Lions II, and so many of you have walked with us in spirit the last few years!
Now that I’ve started school, the active fundraising is over for a while… but donations are always open for CAM, and this website will always be there to support that!
