Please support our exciting Mount Aconcagua fundraiser!

“I would like to endorse and encourage this brave expedition up the great Aconcagua mountain and also the courageous fight to help rebuild Zimbabwe on the right foundations by the Mike Campbell Foundation. Please support them all you can.”

Dear Supporter

In December 2017 our Executive Director, his two sons and two friends plan to summit Mount Aconcagua. Located in the Argentinean Andes, Aconcagua is the highest mountain in the world outside the Himalayas, standing at 6,962m/22,841ft. The sheer altitude, as well as high winds and deep snowfalls, make the climb extremely tough.

In Ben's own words:

“We have faced massive persecution and witnessed terrible destruction in Zimbabwe. It requires courage, tenacity and teamwork to overcome them and move forward. The camaraderie, grit and triumph involved in summiting great mountains are valuable lessons for life's other formidable challenges.”

We would be very grateful if you could support the team's climb. The three boys in the summit team are just 17, 15 and 14 years old. All monies raised will go towards the vital work of the Mike Campbell Foundation on Zimbabwe.
