The Heroes Project Sets Sights On KilimanjaroBy Kungfujedi
On June 30th Tim will set off on his next expedition this time traveling to Africa to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, the tallest peak on the continent. Accompanying him on that journey will be Marine Staff Sergeant Mark Zambon, who lost both of his legs while serving a tour of duty in Afghanistan last year. This will be both a tremendous challenge to Mark and a fantastic adventure as he treks to the Roof of Africa.
We can all follow Tim and Mark on their journey as they'll be posting regular audio dispatches to the First Ascent Facebook page. First Ascent is of course the line of outdoor gear from Eddie Bauer that has become quite popular with climbers over the past few years. They are a proud sponsor of the Heroes Project and will help share the progress of this expedition.
Good luck to Tim and Mark. Enjoy the climb!
