Celebrate Life to climb Mt. Meru in Tanzania

Ten brave women from Celebrate Life will be making their way up to Mt. Meru in Tanzania in October 2014 to raise funds.  Durban North News spoke to Cherry Armstrong, founder of Celebrate Life SA, about the climb.

“These ladies are from different industries but their personal commitments illustrate that they all have one common goal which is to complete the Mt. Meru challenge and raise funds for our projects,” she said.

Armstrong said she opened the NGO a year ago with a dream to involve people who would like to make a difference in the world by appreciating South African heritage and preserving the natural environment. 

“My first project was taking 12 girls to climb Kilimanjaro to raise funds for Hospice.  I have been involved in palliative care for many years, still hold the hand of the dying and counsel loved ones.

After the Lewa Project, I decided it was time to register Celebrate Life SA and launch it into the international fund raising arena,” she added.

Armstrong said they are constantly trying to raise awareness with their projects with one message in mind, “you can make a difference no matter how big or small.”
