Climb for Cancer

Hi! Our names are Avani (15) and Ishani Mitra (13). In August of this year, 2018, we are climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa with our dad. We are dedicating our climb to Mount Kilimanjaro to help support and raise money for cancer research. 

We have lost many members of our family to cancer, and this has inspired us to help raise money towards cancer research. We hope we can help save lives and bring more cures to the world.

About the mountain: Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest freestanding mountain in the world at 19341 ft (5895 m) and the highest peak in the African continent. Located in the country of Tanzania, not too far south of the equator.

Where the money will go: We decided that all proceeds donated will go to the Cancer Research Institute. The CRI is dedicated to finding cures for different types of cancer. By researching, funding clinical trials and trying to save lives, they are the future for the fight against cancer. ***All expenses in the trip will be paid for by us: airfare, equipment, food, etc.

100% of all money raised will go directly to the Cancer Research Institute. Imagine being able to help in even the slightest bit! Any and all donations are beyond appreciated. Thank you so much for reading this and we hope you consider donating to this cause.
