Update on Climbing Kili for Cancer Kids
With the Kilimanjaro “Climbing Kili for Cancer Kids” Fundraising Hike approaching fast, our intrepid hikers have been training hard every spare moment they have had, mostly on our Natural Wonder, Table Mountain.
Official preparations have now begun in earnest and the team will depart for Tanzania in 10 days time to take on the the highest mountain in Africa, the magnificent and statuesque Mount Kilimanjaro, to raise funds for Little Fighters Cancer Trust .
They will begin their hike on 1 July, taking on the trek to Uhuru Peak via the Rongai Route, the only northern approach to Kilimanjaro, and which offers a true wilderness experience on the early stages of the climb and a very tough final summit from the north.
The hike will take 6 or 7 days, during which the hikers will walk through cypress plantations, montane forest, heather-covered moorland, and traverse slight to extremely steep gradients by day and sleep over in tents, in caves, and in campsites at night.
The team will begin at 1 950m at the start of the hike and climb to 5 895m at Uhuru Peak, otherwise known as “The Roof of Africa,” which they will hopefully summit on the 5th of July.
Our Climbing Kili team say that they are feeling Fighting Fit and are ready to take on the this awesome hike in the name of Little Fighters Cancer Trust and all of our Little Fighters.
Team LFCT wishes all of our hikers good luck and good health as they go into the final days of preparation for this wonderful Fundraising Adventure.
