Ten years ago, a group of Power To Be supporters and our founder set off on an expedition to summit Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa, to raise funds and awareness for our mission of removing barriers and creating access to nature. Now we want to celebrate the anniversary of the original expedition by providing today’s supporters the chance to summit Kilimanjaro, virtually and raise awareness and funds for Power To Be.
From September 18th-20th teams will work together to cumulatively complete the elevation of the 2010 Kilimanjaro expedition along the Machame Route. You can race together or on your own – whatever makes you the most comfortable.
In the spirit of Power To Play, racers can expect a little challenge and of course, some fun along the way, with “Best Dressed”, “Team Spirit”, “Fastest Team”, “Toughest Team” and the Social Media Challenges throughout the journey. The top fundraising team will win the “Act of Kindness” award and be profiled in a full-page ad in The Globe and Mail.
