Climb a Mountain to Save Lives

This expedition is a trip of a lifetime a hike to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro (19,340 ft / 5,895 m).

February 10 - 16, 2024

Our team participants will train their bodies for the physical and mental rigors of high altitude. They will think creatively and activate their networks to raise money for the innovative young scientists supported by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation. Our goal as a collective team is to reach at least $1M for brave and bold Damon Runyon scientists.
