On June 13-26, 2022, K2 Adventure Travel and members of the Valleywise Health Foundation will lead a team of burn survivors, medical professionals and donors to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. We will raise awareness of all that burn survivors can accomplish and the life-changing work done at the Arizona Burn Center at Valleywise Health. More than fundraising for a new Burn Survivorship Center and a climb, this is about showing our survivors AND community that anything is possible when we #RiseTogether.

With your support, one courageous burn survivor will be equipped with all the essentials to safely complete this epic journey to 19,341 ft.
Rising together, we support Valleywise Health and the Arizona Burn Center’s vision for a world-class burn survivorship and wellness center like no other.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our climb of Kilimanjaro has been postponed to June 13-26, 2022. We will stay ready to pivot at any time as the state of the pandemic develops.
Standing as Africa’s tallest mountain, Kilimanjaro is one of the world’s seven summits. While it may be the fourth most topographically prominent peak on Earth, Kilimanjaro requires no technical skills or equipment, such as rope, harness, crampons or ice axe.
