Gina's Climbing Kilimanjaro

Climbing for a Cause: Kilimanjaro

I, Lynne Livingston, really wanted to climb Kilimanjaro for my 60th birthday this year with my friends Gina Ebbs and Drew Harvey. But, I injured my knee this Fall and am not able to make the ascent. I have decided to help Gina raise some money to honour her craziness in going! I’ll be rooting for her and the group the whole time!

Sandy McKnight, Drew Harvey, Chuck Stout, Jim Wolf and I (Gina Ebbs), will soon be heading off to start our 2012 on a real high. In a moment of madness a few months ago we decided to sign up to climb the highest mountain in Africa, Mt Kilimanjaro!

The climb will (hopefully) take us all to the summit of 5895 metres above sea level. Not only will we push to the top, we will be pushed to our limits; we will have to deal with freezing conditions and the risk of altitude sickness. So why are we doing this? Well I am still wondering : ) about that! But, if I am going to put myself through the pain then I may as well raise money for a good cause, three actually.

I have chosen 3 charities to benefit from my insanity and all money raised will be divided equally. Lynne will be distributing it to the charities for me. Please make the climb worth while not just for me but for others in need.
