BENEFITING: IAN SOMERHALDER FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Dec 26, 2015
Kilimanjaro is the highest free-standing mountain in the world and attracts thousands of trekkers each year, hoping to reach its summit, an impressive 5895m above sea level. When I was younger I wrote a bucket list and on that list was to 'climb a mountain'. If you had known me at school you would have laughed at that notion. I was the least physical person you could have met. I hid in the toilets on several occaisions in order to avoid PE. I hope to accomplish this goal and help spread the ISF message to new heights!
The Ian Somerhalder Foundation aims to empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures.
ISF supporters are a team, a group of people, who view the environment as an interconnected organism of which we are not separate but a part of. There is no differentiation between all living things: trees, rivers, animals and humans. We are all one interdependent organism.
Completing this challenge is going to be no easy task! At night temperatures are regularly below freezing. On summit day, trekkers can expect temperatures to be below freezing and with added wind chill, the feel factor can be as low as -20C!
I hope that you will all be behind me, supporting and encouraging me. I will keep you updated on my training with videos and pictures. Lets ROCK this mountain ISF style!
