Join Cover Africa's Sleep-Out Against Malaria!

Cover Africa is a student organization that works to spread awareness about malaria on campus and holds fundraisers to purchase bed nets that are distributed as part of our annual service-learning trip to Ghana.

Cover Africa will be hosting its third biannual SLEEP-OUT ON THE ARTS QUAD beginning at noon on Thursday, April 23rd and ending 4 pm on Friday, April 24th in preparation for Global Malaria Awareness Day on April 25th.

The sleep out will feature LIVE PERFORMANCES by The Callbaxx, Hearsay a Cappella, Phenomenon Step Team, Shadows Dance Troupe, Last Call, Illuminations, Ring of Steel, Drumline, and Shimtah!

FREE FOOD from CTB, CTP, Napoli Pizza, Insomnia Cookies, Dominos, and FREE PANCAKES freshly made by the Class of 2010 will be provided!

It is time we put a stop to this preventable disease.  This is our chance to demonstrate our solidarity with the global campaign to fight malaria!

See you on the Arts Quad
THURSDAY APRIL 23rd to FRIDAY APRIL 24th
**Bring your sleeping bag, a pillow, and a donation towards bed nets**

Check in with an E-board member and have the event count towards community service hours (for Cornell Tradition, BASICS, etc.).
