Macon Leads Climb of Mount Kilimanjaro to Help End Polio Now
TANZANIA, AFRICA – Members and climbers from around the world will climb Mount Kilimanjaro with skilled guide Macon Dunnagan in June and August to raise funds for End Polio Now.
Tanzanian Honorary Tourism Ambassador Macon has climbed to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro 36 times and holds the record of 4 climbs in 28 days. He has often helped organizations and clubs like Rotary’s End Polio Now and Ovarian Cancer Canada plan Kilimanjaro fundraising climbs, lending his expertise to help climbers make a difference.
June 22-27 and August 2-7 of 2015, Macon will be returning to climb Kilimanjaro for the 37th and 38th time. The two groups will travel 54 miles to the top over a period of 6 days, and will raise money for the fight against polio around the world.
Climbers and Rotarians around the world are challenged to take this opportunity for a once in a lifetime experience while helping to eradicate a globally devastating disease. Funds raised will be given to the World Health Organization for polio immunization, surveillance, and research.
