Celebrate Life Team prepare for Mt. Meru Climb

On 26th October, 6 ladies from the Mount Meru team set out on a gruelling 3 day hike through Lesotho, Eastern Cape and the Drakensberg to prepare for their climb up Mount Meru in October 2014 to raise funds for the rhino, elephant, lion and vultures – all endangered species in South Africa at present. The hike was mentally and physically challenging which saw the girls” hit the wall” at various stages of the hike. The guide, Malcolm Miller, hailed as a mountain God, pushed the team to limits they did not know they had but the team building exercise proved a worthy point in pulling the team together and facing the reality that Mount Meru will be no walk in the park! Although 1000 metres lower than Mount Kilimanjaro, which leader, Cherry Armstrong, completed with a team of girls in 2005, the mountain is very steep in places and they will experience temperatures of  below zero on the climb. The complete list of the causes that they are supporting can be seen on the web site.
