Steve Conquers Kilimanjaro

Steve Henderson celebrates reaching the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro. The mountain is 5895 metres above sea level and Africa's highest peak.

If you would like to donate to the charities Steve is supporting please use the link below. All money contributed will be shared out at 75% to Cystic Fibrosis and 25% to Education East Africa.

Here is Steve's story...

Kilimanjaro is a challenge I’ve always wanted to do but could never quite justify. The ball started rolling when I met up with a guy in Oct 2015 who had just returned from an expedition to Kili and I got a first-hand warts and all insight into the trek. Then about a month later went out for a meal with friends, during the meal I mentioned my above conversation regarding Kili to find out it was a passion was both shared. So, we sobered up next morning just to make sure it wasn’t beer talk and then got it booked with 360 Expeditions.

The 11-day expedition is from the 8th to 18th February 2017 with the Summit Attempt on Day 8. Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the world's highest free standing mountain with a height of 19,340ft. To put this into prospective Ben Nevis is 4,412ft and Everest is 29,028ft.  

The next phase was training!! The only feasible way to train in the UK is going up and down hills in the Yorkshire Dales and Lake-district so no altitude training which I know will be our main challenge for Kili. This is on going!!

I knew all along that I wanted to raise some money when doing Kili but wasn’t sure which charities. As part of my training I did the National 3 Peaks with some good friends in June 2016, this raised money for Cystic Fibrosis which was a cause very close to their hearts. I didn’t get sponsorship at the time but decided this would be a very worthy cause.

At the same time, I also wanted to raise some money for a charity close to Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. I did a bit of research and decided to also raise money for the Education of Children in the Kilimanjaro region for a charity called Education East Africa.

All money contributed will be shared out at 75% to Cystic Fibrosis and 25% to Education East Africa. The trek, equipment and all costs are being funded by me so all money raised goes direct to the charities. This is not one of these events where the charities pay for the trek if I raise over an agreed amount.

Any donations, large or small will be greatly appreciated.
