Jenna-Louise Baird has succeeded in her fundraising challenge: she reached the summit of Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, on Thursday 24 September at 08:30 Tanzanian time.
After 5 long days of climbing and still smiling, she posed for photos on Uluru Peak at the top of the world’s tallest free standing mountain.
“Once I reached the peak all the trials and tribulations were soon forgotten. The views were amazing and the sense of pride and accomplishment was overwhelming! Not only had I achieved my personal goal I also had the opportunity to make a difference in the world we live in by doing it for World Land Trust,” said Jenna-Louise on her return to Britain.
Kilimanjaro rises some 4,877 metres (16,001 feet) from its base to 5,895 metres (19,341 feet) above sea level.
Jenna-Louise has so far raised more than £2,300, which is a great total! You can still support her by making a donation on her fundraising page.
