What I am doing:
Me and my best friend Annabelle have decided to climb Kilimanjaro to raise vital funds for a charity named Dig Deep. They aim to build up rural communities in Africa by giving them clean sources of drinking water and to also provide them with the means of renewable energy too. The brilliant add along is that they use the local community to help build the projects and this helps the whole community to develop!Facts about the expedition:
- Height of Mountain: 5895m - its called the roof of Africa for a reason!
- It will take 6 days- that's 4 days up, 2 days down
- It can get to -10* at the top - best wrap up warm!
- It has a variety of challenging conditions to challenge us, from sub tropical at the bottom to rocky and Arctic at the top!
Overseas challenge e.g. Mountain climbing, Trek the Great Wall of China
