A Virtual Trip up Mt. Kilimanjaro August 1st - 15th, 2021

To date, with two actual climbs under our belt and a big pandemic lull, the Climb for Kids community has raised close to $100, 000 for Christie Lake Kids.

Join us - virtually for now, and put your energy and efforts toward a fantastic cause - the continuing support and development of children in the Ottawa community.

Since 2018, we have trekked through the Ausangate Range in the Peruvian Andes at heights of 5000 metres, and hiked through 170 kilometers through three countries in the Alps on the Tour du Mont Blanc. Given the pandemic, a 2020, then 2021 real trip to climb Mount Kilimanjaro has been put on hold -- but we are still climbing and reaching goals. Christie Lake Kids has partnered with a wonderful group - My Virtual Mission - https://www.myvirtualmission.com to bring all of us on a virtual climb to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro and back.

To sign up for this virtual climb, all you have to do is go to this link: https://www.myvirtualmission.com/missions/93579/climb-virtually-for-kids

We are asking each virtual climber to raise $100 through donations during the climb. Once you are on the climb, you will be able to follow your progress up the mountain using My Virtual Mission. In this virtual climb, you will be covering 57.3 kilometres from the bottom to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. You have 14 days to complete your mission! Walk, run, bike, swim - cover the distance in whatever way works for you.
