After nine days and eight nights on the trail up and down Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Above + Beyond Cancer team has returned safely to the town of Moshi. Incredibly, 37 out of the 40 participants, which included 19 cancer survivors and 21 caregivers, reached the cold crater at the top of Africa’s tallest mountain where they conducted the highest ever held American Cancer Society ‘Relay For Life.'”
The final days of the journey were full of many powerful moments which will become treasured memories for all. Due to the conditions and remote location of the trail, we were unable to provide daily updates for the second half of the adventure. Now that our computers and batteries have thawed and we have returned to civilization, look for more stories to come in the near future. Thanks for joining in on our journey.
