Indiana Teacher Abroad-Kilimanjaro

My name is Amy, and I am a 4th grade teacher, mom, coach, runner, cyclist and triathlete. I continually try to encourage my students, children, and friends to set goals, reach high, and get moving by inviting them to join me! I believe strongly in leading by example. I have run numerous races including two half marathons, completed several triathlons, and done a century bike ride. I have always had a love for the outdoors. I have a passion for travel, meeting new people, and experiencing new places.
I have always wanted to climb Mount Kilimanjaro because it is, not only incredibly beautiful, but the highest peak in Africa. I am planning on climbing the mountain this summer in hopes to, not only fulfill a dream, but to also encourage others to do the same.
I'm looking forward to climbing with porters and guides who help make the experience that much more enjoyable as they include history and speak the language in their native tongue and talk the culture with you. I have a group that I will be climbing with that includes a few veterans to the climb. The overall trip should cost about $5,000, and I hope to photograph, blog, and share my experience at my blog http://indianateacherabroad.blogspot.com/ and on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/indianateacherabroad. Every little bit counts. Thank you in advance for your donations to help me fulfill a dream!
