Please read Stacey’s story and help send her to Kilimanjaro for charity:
I’ve been struggling with my weight for well over 12 years. I find going to the gym to be incredibly boring. When I discovered hiking a whole new door opened! It was great exercise, peaceful, invigorating and hours would pass before I would even realize it. This was how I was going to get in shape for good! Then I was approached by my cousin, Kara Richardson Whitley, asking if I’d be interested in joining her on her third and final trek up Mt Kilimanjaro. She has climbed up Mt Kilimanjaro twice before in the name of getting in shape and raising money for charity.
I’m excited to announce that in February I will be climbing up Mt Kilimanjaro as part of a celebrity weight loss Kilimanjaro trek. The journey will be filmed for a television series. Each one of the trek participants (Muhammad Ali’s daughter Khaliah Ali, former Biggest Losers Heba Salama and Ed Brantley, Author Kara Richardson Whitley and more) have famously struggled with his or her weight and are taking on the challenge up Africa’s highest peak to get in shape and raise money for charity.
In addition to getting in shape I’ve committed to raising $5,000 for Global Alliance for Africa. GAA (Tax Exempt ID E-9940-2068-02), helps children orphaned/abandoned as a result of AIDs/HIV.
To help me get to my fundraising goal I’ve partnered with a really cool t-shirt company called “I am”. They custom designed this super cool Hiking & AIDs ribbon t-shirt w/the tag line “See you on top”. $5 of every shirt purchased will go to Global Alliance for Africa! If you like one of the other shirts simply put climb4health in the promo code and $4 will go to GAA.
