Kiliclimb

Welcome to the Rotary International District 7680 2012 Kilimanjaro Climb website.

Most of the climbers have arrived in Africa!  They are posting on Facebook pictures of the views and of each other.  What an exciting time for them, and for Rotary as we have nearly reached our fundraising goal. We're 3/4 of the way there. We need your support if we are to eradicate polio from the world.

The cost to vaccinate 1 child can be as low as $0.60. When considering the pain and suffering that $0.60 can prevent, it’s hard to imagine how anything else can purchase so much for so little.

While we highly recommend you sponsor one or more of our climbers, you may make a general donation in support of the effort by pressing this button:

30 Rotarians from District 7680 will climb Mt. Kilimanjaro September 10-15, 2012. We will be the first United States Rotarians to summit the peak as a group. Paired with the Kili climb will be a local walk at Crowders Mountain State Park on September 15, 2012.  Macon Dunnagan (Charlotte-South) will lead the Kili climbs. To date, Macon has summitted Kili 20 times, most recently in January 2012.  

We are very excited to announce that 32 Rotarians are currently signed up to participate in wonderful event to help rid the world of Polio.  Each climber has committed to raise at least $3,000 toward Rotary’s signature project to End Polio Now.  We have a need for establishing a group of climbing alternates for this trip.  In addition to the September 10-15 climb, Macon has added September 24-29, 2012, to accommodate Rotarians outside of District 7680 and other friends and family; there are openings for climbers.

Please look here for information concerning the climb, schedule, participant directory, FAQ and materials needed by climbers.

We will also host sponsorship information and provide the ability to sponsor a climber from this site.
