Supporters face Mount Kilimanjaro, August 2014

Posted in: News, by Bridge2Aid Team, on 10th October 2013 | 0 comments

During August we have two supporters separately climbing to Africa’s rooftop to raise money for our training programmes in East Africa.

On August 13th, Kevin Hill will take on the challenge of his lifetime in a bid to raise £3,000 for charities Back Up and Bridge2Aid. The challenge will take him through Kilimanjaro’s Machame route, arguably the most challenging option. The day walks are longer and steeper than the others and the experience of climbing to over 19,000 feet, walking for up to ten hours and sleeping outdoors will test him both mentally and physically – a challenge Kevin is prepared to take on to support his causes. Kevin comments ‘I’m no stranger to fundraising, and this year I wanted to really push myself.  Mount Kilimanjaro is the perfect challenge – although I may regret opting to take the Macheme route! I’m hoping to raise much needed funds for two incredible charities, and I hope the friends and family will support my efforts.’

Later in the month, on August 29th, Dentist Sarah Kime will leave the UK to take on the Rongai route. Sarah has previously volunteered with Bridge2Aid in Tanzania and explains that ‘it has been a goal of mine since I first flew over Kilimanjaro in 2009 on my first dental volunteer trip with Bridge2Aid. It’s an organisation I have been involved with for some years now, and I am very passionate about.’
We thank both Kevin and Sarah for supporting us and wish them the very best of luck as they take on Mount Kilimanjaro!
If you’d like to experience Mount Kilimanjaro please register your interest for the Bridge2Aid trip in August 2014.  This amazing opportunity takes you on a guided trek to 5,895 metres above sea level, hiking the Marangu Route of Kilimanjaro. Join us from Aug 14th-24th 2014 whilst raising money in order to provide safe and sustainable access to emergency dental care for thousands who are currently living without access to a dentist, and facing a life in pain.
