Kilimanjaro 2017

Our team of intrepid climbers have now returned from their incredible challenge of trekking up Mount Kilimanjaro.

Just over a week ago they began the climb to reach the summit of the famous mountain in Tanzania, tackling adverse weather conditions, altitude sickness and sleeping in tents on the mountain side.

The team got so close to reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro, but unfortunately due to severe weather and an intense blizzard they were unable to reach the very top of the mountain. They were just metres away from the top, but with the safety of the participants in mind, they made the call to turn back.

This amazing group of people have raised well over £70,000 to help keep the Air Ambulance flying and saving lives.

If you would like to take part in one of our future challenges, please get in touch with Ian@hiowaa.org or visit our challenges page.
