While it showed the brutal nature of when altitude takes effect and the exhausting slog that is the journey of reaching the summit, it also showed the shooting highs of overcoming the varying fears, struggles and emotions, and conquering the Kilimanjaro challenge.

It certainly caused a flurry of excitement at DA HQ, reminding us of just how spectacular our Trek Kilimanjaro is and the positive impact that completing a fundraising challenge like this can have on so many lives.
