Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro on behalf of the Challenged Athletes Foundation was an accomplishment. However getting the chance to show thanks to the support staff of guides, porters, cooks, assistants and everyone else involved, made it all worth it. How about starting off with Kili in a bottle + 686
Let me guess, you like the 686 Snaggle beanie
After the Porter Party, we had some unfinished biz to take care of. As part of the charity work in Africa, we were involved in bringing racing wheelchairs from the states to challenged athletes here. Say hello to Africa’s next Paralympic athletes.
There’s obviously a shortage of proper resources for people with disabilities here. When it comes to athletes with disabilities and there shot to excel in life, let alone competition, forget about it. Have you heard of Emmanuel’s Gift?
So the folks at CAF, along with our guides, Beth, Paul and Denise reached out to a bunch of disabled athletes in the states to donate their used race chairs so we could gratuitously pass it forward to those in need here in Africa. 15 race chairs later, here we are. This dude is one of contenders of the next Paralympic games-He now has a chance to make it a reality
Letting go of a device, such as this wheelchair is a huge emotional process. However when you can connect the dots to someone who embraces it, the process is complete. Check the photo out of the women who donated it
Give Back your way. Big ups CAF
