13 men signed up for the inaugural Climbing Kili for the Kids Adventure Mission Trip and Fundraiser we held last month and by all accounts, it was a smashing success!
Not only did all 13 men successfully make the Summit Bid, but each man was able to visit our partners in Uganda and see first hand the work God is doing there. Especially exciting is the work being done with our Authentic Masculinity Cohorts. Our Man Up team was blown away by the self-reported transformation taking place in these cohorts as men are learning to be better husbands, fathers, protectors, and providers for their families.
The hike up Kilimanjaro without question knocked off a bucket list item, but it was all the more meaningful as it was tied to the cause of fighting for the fatherless. For many of the men, it was one of the hardest challenges they’ve faced, yet each one overcame in his own way.
We hope to tell more stories about this adventure in the coming weeks and months, but for now, we’ve put together a two-episode documentary “short” for you to get a glimpse regarding what the trek was like. Enjoy, share with your friends, and thank you for your support!
