Ethan Zohn to Speak

The Artist-Lecture Series presents Ethan Zohn at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 3 at Akin Auditorium.  Zohn, an American soccer player and winner of the 2002 reality television show Survivor-Africa, used his $1 million prize to co-found Grassroot Soccer, a nonprofit organization that trains professional soccer players to teach African children about HIV/AIDS prevention. In August 2008, Ethan officially launched Grassroot Soccer UNITED, an international, youth-led movement to raise money and build awareness for his foundation and mission to end HIV/AIDS in Africa, by embarking on a world-record-breaking 550-mile journey on foot from Boston to Washington, D.C. – dribbling a soccer ball the entire route.
