Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in all of Africa, standing at 19,341 ft above sea level. Part of Climb For Memory's goal is to raise awareness for Alzheimer's Disease through mountain climbs around the world. But up until this point, these climbs have only been attempted by one person at a time. This year's Kilimanjaro climb was an attempt to grow the organization into a body that helps others actualize their dreams of climbing and also their desire to help make an impact in the arena of Alzheimer's awareness.
This year's Kilimanjaro climb was a simple test to get things rolling, putting together a group of 9 climbers to attempt the summit. Now that the trip is over and saw immense success (8 out of 9 summits), we will be running this trip every other year in January. If you are interested in climbing this peak in the future, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will start helping you plan your dream of climbing the highest peak in Africa!
