How will The Big Climb happen?
Solidarity is essential in the fight against COVID-19. We need to act together in providing necessary resources for the fair and equal distribution of protective equipment and vaccines. The virus needs to be better tracked, so that any new strains can be rapidly identified, tracked and defeated. In a number of low-income countries, health worker need better protection. Vaccines are essential in preventing the formation of drug resistant new strains.
Mt Kilimanjaro Climb
34 climbers including you, renowned mountain athletes, celebrities, and representatives of the private and public sectors will climb the Rongai Route. Departing on 19 October, the climbers will aim to reach the summit on 25 October 2021 – United Nations Day.
