In October 2020, K2 Adventure Travel and members of the Valleywise Health Foundation will lead a team of burn survivors, medical professionals and donors on a rim to rim hike of the Grand Canyon. In June 2021, our team will set off 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 – 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 rise together.

We are carefully monitoring the current situation in regards to when we’ll resume smaller team hikes and when our Kilimanjaro climb will take place.
As of now, we’re planning to take on the Grand Canyon in October 2020 and Kilimanjaro in June 2021. However, depending on how the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, we will have to stay ready to pivot at any time.
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.
