Launched by UboraTZ on Januari 8, 2021, Climb Kili is the challenge to to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro for all people around the world. The virtual event itself will be held in February 2021.
Through the Climb Kili campaign, the non-profit UboraTZ wants to make the adventure of climbing the tallest freestanding mountain in the world accessible to all.
People can participate in Climb Kili from anywhere in the world. Climbers have the month of February to climb, walk or run one of three virtual routes up Kilimanjaro of varying levels of challenge and difficulty. For their efforts, climbers will receive a Climb Kili medal.
In addition to Climb Kili medals, certificates and bragging rights will be awarded in a number of categories, including most money raised for UboraTZ, team spirit award, most people recruited to participate in Climb Kili, most mileage logged during the climb, and more.
All proceeds raised from Climb Kili benefit UboraTZ, a nonprofit organization serving a community of people in Tanzania, once severely impoverished, who live in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
Families, couples, teams and adventure seekers who would like to do adventure while also doing good could register on ClimbKili.org. The registration fee to Climb Kili is $40 per adult and $25 for youth ages 18 and under.
