A View From There: Kilimanjaro (Part 4 of 4)

Kilimanjaro. Africa’s highest mountain. Wishing to raise money for health care and education for the children of Kenya, the sister and brother team of Veronica and Richard Smiley, in partnership with the March to the Top Foundation, climbed Kilimanjaro this past August, raising $25,000 in the process.

While putting together the articles on Veronica and Richard, there were simply too many wonderful photographs to choose from. Rather than leave them out, TBD decided that we would simply extend the series one more day and share as many of the Smiley’s photographs as possible.

Part One of this series detailed the inspiration and preparation for the climb and can be read here.

Part Two tells of the climb itself and the difficulties faced along the way.

Part Three looks at the New Hope Orphanage and the Children that Veronica and Richard were inspired to help
