Huge congratulations to motivational speaker and change-maker Spencer West for completing his seven day climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa!
Spencer completed the climb and reached the summit June 19th with his friends, David Johnson and Alex Meers, by his side. By completing his climb, Spencer has raised over $500,000 for Free The Children’s clean water projects in Kenya!
Spencer said, “I set out to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro not only to redefine what’s possible for me, but to inspire others to overcome obstacles and challenges of their own and to give back to communities that need our help. Reaching the peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro was the most mentally and physically challenging thing I have ever done, but in doing so, it reinforced the powerful message behind believing in yourself and believing in others. So many people made this journey possible for me and I am so humbled by everyone’s support.”
