Trek Kilimanjaro Sept 13
Raising money for Forever Angels
The Challenge
We are a married couple hopefully fulfilling our dream by trekking to the top of Kilimanjaro in Sep 13. We spend 8 days walking the Rongai Trail, summiting on the 7th day (finger crossed).
The Charity
As we are spending time in Mwanza after the trek we decided to find a worthy local cause and the Forever Angels orpahage touched our hearts. Founded by a British couple Amy & Ben Hathaway the story of how the orphanage was founded is amazing. Have a read through their website to see the work that is being done to help the orphaned children of Mwanz
The Training
We have walked a good chunk of 'The Rheinsteig' to get our walking legs on and to get use to being on our feeet for long periods of time. Also it's good practice up & down the hills wearing our packs. We aim to complete this trail before we depart to Africa in Sept 13 but time is running out.
