CURE Ole Miss to Sponsor 5K Run on Saturday

The money raised for the event goes toward life-saving surgeries and medical treatment for children in Zambia.

The CURE Ole Miss chapter will host its first 5k run at 8 a.m. on December 2nd, starting in the Circle on the Ole Miss campus. The money raised from the event will be used to provide surgeries and medical treatment for children with curable disabilities in Zambia, Africa.

CURE Ole Miss is part of CURE International, a large Christian organization based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, that has hospitals across third-world countries.

CURE Ole Miss raises money specifically for the Beit-CURE Hospital in Zambia. Because of the donations from CURE Ole Miss and other donors, Beit-CURE Hospital can provide life-saving surgeries and treatment for children at no cost to the child’s family. Doctors, surgeons and volunteers from all over the world, including the United States, Italy and South Africa, work at Beit-CURE Hospital.

Olivia Miller spent three weeks last summer in a Zambian hospital as part of her volunteer work for CURE Ole Miss.

Olivia Miller, a member of CURE Ole Miss, volunteered at the Beit-CURE Hospital for three weeks over the summer of 2017. “It was so encouraging to see God using the staff to not only heal the children physically but also focusing on their spiritual needs,” said Miller.
