16 champion supporters from "Down Under" Australia tackle Mount Kilimanjaro today!
Special Olympics Australia are cheering
on 16 supporters who this week are being brave and challenging themselves to
reach the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro. They are on a MISSION to raise funds and
awareness so that Australia can deliver more sports programs to young children
across the country. Mark Streeting, Chair and fellow board member Kim Bryan from
Special Olympics Australia have set out with 14 other inspiring supporters to
conquer the climb and generate lots of donations and support. The Mountain
Challenge team visited Special Olympics Tanzania last Friday 1st March 2013 to
share some donated sports gear, mascots and gifts with local young athletes.
Mark said, "I feel even more motivated now to conquer the mountain after feeling
the pure joy of the young athletes. Special Olympics transforms lives and today
I witnessed again how it transforms communities."
Meet the team and

Well done Team!
