CONQUERING KILIMANJARO



For weeks, we've been sharing small details about our BIG project. Now, we're finally able to reveal many more details about our upcoming documentary, Conquering Kilimanjaro, including giving you your first look at the theatrical trailer for the film that celebrates the power of hope, inspiration and possibility.

Conquering Kilimanjaro is a feature length documentary on Survivor Summit, a partnered event of the LIVESTRONG Foundation, about an inspirational team of cancer survivors and members of the cancer community on an extraordinary adventure. We take you on their grueling step-by-step journey as they struggle to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro, the world's tallest freestanding mountain, to make a statement about the spirit and determination of the 32 million cancer survivors worldwide.

We're hard at work to finish production on this critically important documentary, but we need your help. We've launched a Kickstarter campaign to help us raise the funds necessary to complete the project. How will your funds be used and what will you get in return? We believe in 100 percent transparency. See below for more details about the project.

There is not a family in America that hasn't felt the fear and pain associated with cancer, which will soon be the No. 1 killer in the U.S. Conquering Kilimanjaro will honor those who ran out of time and inspire the rest of us by proving that anything is possible and life is worth fighting for. Help us tell these stories and in exchange, we're offering some really cool rewards, from adding your name (or that of a loved one) to the film's credits to receiving a personal call from LIVESTRONG CEO and three-time cancer survivor Doug Ulman.

Meet the Climbers

The 16 members of the Kilimanjaro summit team were, for the most part, complete strangers before meeting one another just one day before their adventure began. Despite that fact, within hours of meeting one another, they made a stunning decision that, statistically, all but doomed their chance of success. In reality, it was a decision that created a lifelong bond and the opportunity for an even greater success. Click here to meet the men and women of this team, including the four cancer survivors.

Did you know that climbers endure a variety of conditions on the climb to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro? Over the course of seven days, they climbed through mud and snow and ice, making a slow but steady ascent in the rain and the wind. They climbed steep inclines of deep volcanic ash, scrambled over large boulders and stumbled on loose gravel. Check out a gallery of pictures taken every step of the way by the Survivor Summit team members.
