Hi everyone, I'm headed off to Tanzania to climb Kilimanjaro on August 19th! It will be my first of the Seven Summits, the highest mountain on each continent. It's 19, 340 feet. August 29th is summit day. I'm fundraising for Big City Mountaineers again. They're an amazing organization that the Outdoor Industry widely supports. Big City Mountaineers transforms the lives of under-served urban youth through wilderness mentoring expeditions that instill critical life skills. My goal is to raise $2500. I'd be honored to have your support! I'm doing this trek with RMI guides via the Machame route with a group of 9 strangers. It will be a great opportunity to get off the grid, reset priorities and push myself mentally and physically...the mountain has a way of stripping everything away and making you feel truly alive. I'm a little nervous but very excited, especially for Tom to meet me at the gate when I come off the mountain! Love and Thanks, Deborah
