Climbing Mountains to Fight Cancer
For the last few years Earth Treks has been partnering with Livestrong and Survivor Summit!
“Survivor Summit is a LIVESTRONG partnered event that exists to provide inspiration, motivation and hope for those among us facing uphill battles.” The Mission of the Survivor Summit Foundation is to lead cancer survivors and their supporters on life altering journeys, inspiring them and the community at large to challenge the mental and physical boundaries associated with cancer. You can visit www.survivorsummit.org to learn more about the Kilimanjaro Expedition.
On December 4th, the documentary, “Conquering Kilimanjaro,” (http://www.conqueringkilimanjaro.com/) produced by Growing Bolder premiered in Orlando. This documentary follows 16 Cancer Survivors and community advocates while they attempt to climb Kilimanjaro. With a successful summit this really is a truly inspiring and touching documentary. Earth Treks’ CEO Chris Warner and long time guide Nelson Laur, led this expedition, which placed 100% of the climbers on the summit.
Chris Warner and other guides will be leading the 3rd Survivor Summit Kili Climb for Livestrong in late January 2015.
