Climb for CARE Kilimanjaro 2013

Live your dream of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with me and other Canadians while supporting CARE Canada. The climb will take place from December 29, 2013 to January 6, 2014.

The challenges and rewards of the fundraising, training, and climbing journeys make this experience unique. Designed for all Canadians wishing to do extraordinary things, each team member is asked to determine a fundraising goal that will stretch them.

Conquering Kiimanjaro while raising money for CARE will inspire you to do things you never dreamed you could do!

Space is limited. I will accepts 12 climbers maximum to the 2013 team.
