Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa is the largest free-standing mountain in the world – a place few ever get to see in person. Last year, however, our friend Chad took an amazing journey to climb it! In this special episode, Chad and his partner, Matt, join us to tell his story about how he came to make the climb and the incredible physical and mental feats that it takes to get to the summit!
We’ve been friends with Chad for years and even though we’d heard about his climb up Mount Kilimanjaro a few times before, we’d never had the time to dig into it and hear all of the crazy details. We had definitely thought about the physical toll it takes, but we had no idea about the mental toll. Not to mention he even took his Nintendo Switch all the way to the summit! What an incredible story this is, from one of our favorite people in the world!
Part of Chad’s motivation to make the trip was to raise funds to save the Pangolin – the most illegally trafficked animal in the world. Click here to find out how you can help donate to save them.
