BIRTHDAY BLAST: Chaeli Takes On Kilimanjaro
Categories: ALL THE NEWS , Disability, Employment
The First Female Quadriplegic to Summit Kilimanjaro!
This past week we celebrated our 11th birthday at The Chaeli Campaign, and we are thrilled to be able to say that we continue to make a difference in the lives of our beneficiaries, one person at a time.
On the 29th of August, seven climbers, including Chaeli, will embark on an incredible adventure by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. In a custom fitted ‘mountain’ wheelchair, Chaeli will ascend to the ‘top of Africa’ with the aim of showing how important it is to work together to attain a seemingly impossible goal. If successful, we believe that she will be the first female quadriplegic to summit Mount Kilimanjaro.
