Advocacy Team plans event to raise money for malaria

September 22, 2010

McDaniel’s student-led Advocacy Team is sponsoring an all-night camp-out from 9 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 23, to 9 a.m. Friday, Sept. 24, on the quad between Daniel McLea and Albert Norman Ward Hall.

Called “Night for Nets,” the event is aimed at raising awareness and money to stamp out malaria – a mosquito-borne disease that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control estimates killed about 1 million people in 2008, most of them children in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Advocacy Team will be raising money in several ways – attendees may pay $1 for song requests that a disc jockey will play, decorate T-shirts for $5 each, or give money at a donation station. Participants also will be able to enjoy free games of volleyball and Frisbee, or make malaria-themed art. Throughout the event, an educational film about malaria will be shown.

The event is being held in conjunction with World Vision ACT:S, which campaigns to end malaria by 2015. McDaniel’s Advocacy Team, which includes members of the Outdoors Club, Circle K and Women’s Issues Group, plans to donate all “Night for Nets” proceeds toward buying bed nets.
