Climbing a mountain for charity

Hundreds of climbing groups per year climb Mt. Kilimanjaro for a cause. The causes range from from aid’s awareness, money for cancer research to countless children’s organziation spanning the globe. Since climbing the highest mountain in Africa is a major feat, many use this goal to raise money for these humanitarian or social causes. Here is a recent story published.

“The difficulty is not only climbing the mountain, but the mental and physical preparation beforehand and collecting the funds,” said Alec Sultana, leader of the Kilimanjaro Challenge at the official launch of the Kilimangaro Challenge 2 (KC2).

The target of this year’s KC2 is to raise another Lm38,000 to build a convent adjacent to the school built with the funds collected from the first Kilimangaro Challenge. This year’s group consists of 24 volunteers who come from all walks of life and a variety of age groups. Architects, doctors, archaeologists, business people and full time employees, with their ages ranging from the early twenties to early fifties, are working to achieve this year’s target.

hey donovan,

your site looks great, and now i have a more consolidated idea of what climbing kili entails, all in one site, awesome…after joseph’s photographs and stories of his climb and the imax documentary of those diversified climbers…it looks daunting and rewardingly painful…all the more enticing to climb. really glad to have met you guys during your visit here in nyc for the travel expo, i recall you mentioning this idea we were hanging out at the anatomy bar where joseph talked about trekshare. congrats on getting it done and thanks for putting this together…joseph says hello, and let us know when you and sean head back to nyc.

oregon rocks! (i know how to pronounce it now)
