In January 2012, Team Kilimanjaro, spearheaded by congenital amputee Kyle Maynard, will climb to the top of the highest peak in Africa.
In bringing together both “able-bodied” and “disabled” civilians and military veterans on the climbing team, Mission Kilimanjaro’s purpose is to demonstrate to our heroes in the veteran community and to young people with disabilities around the world that no obstacle is too great to be conquered with an active, no-barriers lifestyle and
Today’s veterans face adversity both on the battlefield and at home.
Many return from deployment with scars that are sometimes invisible, making the transition back to civilian life challenging in unexpected ways. Tragically, an average of 18 veterans decides each day that those challenges are too overwhelming and chooses to end their lives. Team Kilimanjaro as a whole and its former military members in particular are using the trek up the mountain to show these men and women who served so bravely that there are other choices and that it is possible to overcome any obstacle.
Similarly, children born with disabilities face many adversities. Mission Kilimanjaro will begin in Moshi, Tanzania, with a trip to the Mwereni Integrated School for the Blind where Kyle and the team will spend time with children confronting the difficulties of living with a disability in a third-world country. The goal of this special interaction is to help inspire children to realize their ability to overcome any perceived limitation and transform their perspectives of what is possible in their lives. Through a donation from K2 Summit Productions, Team Kilimanjaro will deliver $25,000 worth of medical supplies to the school to help make it possible for them to live an active, "no barriers" lifestyle and positively impact their local communities.
The mission will culminate with the team’s summiting of Mount Kilimanjaro over the course of 16 grueling days. With the summit, Kyle Maynard will become the first quadruple amputee to crawl up the fourth highest peak of the Seven Summits without assistance.
