About the Campaign
Our summer 2018 trip promises to be a unique experience for us as we join W2T’s Executive Director, Susanne Wilson, in Tanzania. We’ll join other hiking and philanthropic enthusiasts to raise funds for Water to Thrive, by climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro.
W2T chose this unique fundraising experience, because Tanzania is one of the three African countries they serve by building clean, safe water wells. This summer expedition will launch with visits to their Tanzanian water projects and also to villages still in need of life-saving water. Afterwards, our group will begin the eight-day climb (one day for descent included), with each climber pledged to raise funds for Water to Thrive. Standing 19,318 feet above sea level, Mt. Kilimanjaro is the tallest, free-standing mountain in the world. Our Kilimanjaro climb will follow the gradual ascent, Lemosho Route, considered one of the most scenic trails and also offering a full-moon summit.
The expedition involves a 35-mile climb with 14,000 feet of elevation. This route offers amazing and diverse rainforest, desert, volcanic and ice rock scenery, as well as an array of wildlife. The group will be led by two expert guides from Climb Kili, a climbing company whose primary focus is safety, ethics, and environmental concern. Climb Kili has worked with numerous charitable groups, including Wounded Warriors and Make a Wish. If you would like to learn more about donating, or join us on the expedition, you may contact Susanne at, firstname.lastname@example.org. Climb Kili offers a FAQ sheet at http://www.climbkili.com/faqs/.
