Kilimanjaro Burns Challenge

Kilimanjaro Burns Challenge

Personal message

Dear Friend,

I'm excited to share with you a new challenge we have embarked on, to raise money for children in need.

Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa at 19,341 feet ( 5,895 meteres ), and one of the most challenging treks in the world.

On 17th June 2019, we will be embarking on a grueling 9 day challenge, with a team of inspiring individuals dedicated to raising funds for children in need.  Every kilometer we cover helps The Avela Foundation provide children with burn injuries an opportunity to receive treatments for their scarring and to aid in their physical & pyschological recovery.

We will be part of a team raising over $32 million, by making the sacrifice of training over the next few months to cope with hiking between 4-14 hours each day.

I have been asked to raise R75 000, and I would be extremely honored, if you are able to support this cause with a  tax-deductable donation.

Since each of our team have paid ALL our own expenses on this expedition, and will also be making our own donation to this incredible cause, we are asking for your support in donating any amount you can.

You can make a tax-deductabledonation directly here: 

www.backabuddy.co.za/kamlen-to-kilimanjaro

All the funds raised will go directly to The Avela Foundation.

Together with your generosity, we can make a difference.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Kamlen Pillay
