Africa Calling

Rising with prominence high above the grassy plains below, Mt. Kilimanjaro is the tallest peak on the African continent and one of the famed Seven Summits.  We have formed a team of 20 incredible individuals who have responded to the call to climb this great mountain which reaches 19,340 feet into the sky ...and we are climbing for a worthy cause.  The CAFrica Kilimanjaro Challenge benefits the Challenged Athletes Foundation, and this blog is where you can follow along as the big adventure will soon be underway.  

Please take a moment to visit our website: with profile pics of our Team, itinerary details under the link About the Climb, and other fun details about this endeavor that promises to be outright life changing for many more individuals than just our climbing team.  In order to keep updated on our progress please "Subscribe" by entering your email in the box on the upper right side of this blog page.  It's free and easy to do, and you will only receive notifications when a new blog post has been made.        

 “After climbing a great hill, one finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk has not yet ended.” –Nelson Mandela - as quoted in "Steps to the Summit" from Step #1 "Dream Big and Step Up!"
