Kili Climb 2011
Raise Funds and Awarness of Clean Water / Update – Successful Summit
Never before has a peak so high… been so high stakes.
What’s at stake is solving part of the global water crisis. Nearly 1 billion people (1,000 million people, to put that in perspective) lack access to clean, safe water. Every 15 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease. We can do our part in East Africa – raising $1 million to provide as many as 50 communities with clean water.
In January 2011, business, community and church leaders from across the world will join together to scale Mt. Kilimanjaro. At 19,330 ft. (5,891 meters), each step to the top will mark a step toward ending the water crisis for up to 50 different communities in East Africa. The event aims to raise $1 million for clean water projects. We will match each climber with a specific village so they and their supporters know which community stands to benefit from their journey.
