Ray Lewis Plans to Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in June


Former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis is a future Hall of Famer with two Super Bowl championships, but he is ready to add another accomplishment his career. Lewis announced that he plans to climb Mount Killimanjaro in June for an effort to raise awareness and funds for an East African clean water project.

“In one month, I will climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania to raise money and awareness for clean water projects in East Africa,” Lewis wrote on his web site.

“I am so FIRED UP for this adventure, but until then, I need your help to bring clean water wells to thousands of children and families. Show your support by following my TackleKili journey, spreading the word, and donating to TackleKili. Each action you complete below earns you more entries to win my autographed helmet! Thank you for your support and good luck!

Killimanjaro is the highest free-standing mountain in the world at over 19,000 feet above sea level.

Those who register and donate through Lewis’ site will be eligible to win a Lewis autographed Ravens helmet.

If you want to help spread the word on social media, Lewis has already started the hashtag “#TackleKilli”.

It would be just another great accomplishment in the up and down life of Ray Lewis.
