    As part of our partnership with LIVESTRONG, they have made available a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. How would you like to climb Mount Kilimanjaro? Details below:

    Interested in climbing the tallest freestanding mountain in the world? What if your guide was a world renowned Mountaineer, and you could raise awareness and funds for cancer survivors at the same time? The 2013 Survivor Summit expedition will take place from June 22-July 4, 2013. This expedition will take us to Mount Kilimanjaro, located in the east African nation of Tanzania. At 19,341 feet, Mount Kilimanjaro not only represents the highest peak in Africa, but the tallest free-standing mountain in the world.

    The beauty of Kilimanjaro is that prior climbing experience is not required. This climb is considered non-technical. The physical and emotional attributes needed to summit are based on general physical fitness, endurance, and a strong will to train and succeed. Fortunately, these are many of the same characteristics that you or your loved ones have utilized as cancer survivors.

    Chris Warner, the founder and CEO of Earth Treks, will lead our expedition. Chris is one of America's most accomplished mountaineers and guides. He has led over 175 international expeditions, helping teams get to the summits of Everest, K2 and Kilimanjaro.

    THIS PACKAGE INCLUDES:

    - Food, lodging and ground transportation for 13 days (June 22 - July 4, 2013)
    - $1,500 worth of camping/trekking gear
    - Trip is led by a world renowned Mountaineer and a host of Tanzanian assistants and guides
    - A post-hike safari at Lake Manyara National Park
    - A post-hike visit to the famed Ngorongoro Crater

    **80,000 airline miles to help get you there
