Climb Kilimanjaro for Meningitis UK

Meningitis UK has challenged the readers of this website to climb the awe-inspiring Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, to help save lives from meningitis.

Both seasoned walkers and brave novices can sign up for this remarkable climb from January 2013.

The trip of a lifetime to Mount Kilimanjaro takes place from January 17 to 27 and covers a variety of diverse terrains, from jungle to volcanic craters, en route to the picturesque snow-capped Uhuru peak, the highest point in Africa at 5,895m high.

The challenge, called The Big Trek, promises to push participants to the limit while helping to raise funds towards wiping out meningitis.

Thousands of people die from the disease each year and taking part in a charity challenge is one of the ways in which people can help raise money towards finding a vaccine.

With your help, Meningitis UK will be able to beat this disease and spare thousands of families the heartache of losing a loved one in the future.

To find out more about these exciting challenges, please contact Liz Gough on 0117 303 3343 or email lizgough@meningitisUK.org or visit www.meningitisuk.org
