Mount Kilimanjaro Trek

"There's a million things I could tell you about, but the bottom line is that it was incredible.

It was very hard, it was scary, it was emotional, it was funny.

I met 18 strangers and made friends for life.

It was breathtakingly beautiful and the single most amazing thing I have ever done.

I'd do it again in a heartbeat. "

MRF Ambassador Nicky McClure

Exclusive MRF event - climbing with a purpose

We've arranged an exclusive trek to the top of the world for MRF members and supporters.

We're looking for intrepid explorers to join us in October 2017 to conquer Kilimanjaro.

Kilimanjaro is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and you'll be joined in your challenge by others from all over the UK and Ireland, we're flying from London, Edinburgh, Belfast and Dublin, all climbing for a world free from meningitis and septicaemia.

Here's your opportunity to make a real difference and give yourself the experience of a lifetime.

At 5,895m, Mt. Kilimanjaro is one of the largest volcanoes ever to break through the Earth's crust. Your challenge is to reach its summit.

Your trek starts in the rainforests of Lemosho Glades and heads upwards as you acclimatise on Shira Plateau. From here you will catch a glimpse of your goal Kibo, Kilimanjaro's main ice-capped peak. You continue via the beautiful Southern Flank, Barranco Wall and Barafu Route.

Temperatures drop at night, allowing you to enjoy the crisp cool air under the star-studded African skies. During the days you'll rise higher; often looking down on a sea of clouds.

This truly is the experience of a lifetime and you can add working towards a world free from meningitis and septicaemia into the mix for an unforgettable experience.

"Seeing the Savannahs in this unspoilt, breathtaking country has been the best thing I have ever achieved" - Christine Etheridge, MRF Ambassador

By becoming part of our team you will be helping to bring a world free from meningitis and septicaemia a step closer.

Meningitis and septicaemia are devastating diseases which can kill or disable in hours. Although anyone of any age can get the diseases, babies, children and young adults are most at risk.

Your contribution will enable us to fund research into the prevention, detection and treatment of meningitis and septicaemia, provide life-saving awareness information and support people who have lost a loved one or are coping with after effects, like Sue and Cieran.
