Interested in Climbing the Tallest Freestanding Mountain in the World?

What if your Guide was a World Renowned Mountaineer, and you could raise Awareness and Funds for Cancer Survivors at the same time?

You are in the right place my friend. Keep Reading....

Our 2015 expedition is a partnered event with LIVESTRONG.  This expedition will take us to Mount Kilimanjaro, located in the east African nation of Tanzania.  At 19,341 feet, Mount Kilimanjaro not only represents the highest peak in Africa, but the tallest free standing mountain in the world.

The beauty of Kilimanjaro is that prior climbing experience is not required.  This climb is considered non-technical.  The physical and emotional attributes needed to summit are based on general physical fitness, endurance, and a strong will to train and succeed. Fortunately, these are many of the same characteristics that you or your loved ones have utilized as cancer survivors.

Chris Warner, the founder and CEO of Earth Treks, will lead our expedition. Chris is one of America's most accomplished mountaineers and guides. He has led over 175 international expeditions, helping teams get to the summits of Everest, K2 and Kilimanjaro.  Meet Chris Warner.

Each participant on our expedition is required to raise a minimum of $10,000.  The money covers your lodging in Africa, meals, expert guides from Earth Treks Inc., and a generous donation to LIVESTRONG, our event partner who is dedicated to improving the lives of cancer survivors.

If this seems like the type of challenge that you are looking for, check out more detailed Trip Information from our friends at Earth Treks and act fast because there are a limited number of spots on this journey. The current trip packet is from our 2014 trip, as we are currently in the process of confirming all logistics for 2015. You can expect our 2015 itinerary to closely mirror 2014.
