- Raised So Far
- Help us raise vital funds
Oh my... that's a MASSIVE mountain
It's a long way down from the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain which towers 5,895 metres above sea level to the northeast of Tanzania.
But more importantly, it's a long way to the top.
It's a journey which involves seven days of trekking, sometimes up to 15 hours a day, at high altitude with a strong likelihood of sickness and definitely a good few blisters. Or so I hear.
But in August I'll be finding out for myself, by climbing the massive dormant volcano to raise funds for Amnesty International.
The journey of a lifetime is set to be the challenge of a lifetime, particularly for a girl who had never camped until just last year, has never owned a pair of hiking boots and who probably drinks and smokes a little more than she should.
Getting fit enough to handle the hours of trekking at high altitude will take months of training, and probably a bit of a clamp down on the jagerbomb tally at the weekend.
The next six months will be tough to say the least.
However, the challenge doesn't end there. Perhaps even more daunting is the task of raising a pretty hefty sum for for Amnesty International Australia to assist them in their stance against those facing injustice and abuse. I'll be brainstorming to think of fun and creative ways to raise the funds over the coming months, and will be blogging about my exploits along the way - all suggestions welcome!
