World Kidney Day on summit of Kilimanjaro
Embark partners with Kidney Donor Athletes Foundation
Embark Exploration Co is excited to begin a new partnership with the Kidney Donor Athletes foundation.
In March 2022, to honor World Kidney Day, 24 athletes and fundraisers will summit Mt. Kilimanjaro and Embark will be the outfitter to facilitate this fundraising climb promoting kidney advocacy.
The team, composed of living kidney donors, will spend 8 days climbing to 19,341 ft in Tanzania, climbing more than 11,000 vertical feet. Their adventure will be fully supported by Embark, and our elite team of more than 120 porters and guides.
The mission of KDA is to build a community that inspires, supports and educates people about the experience of kidney donation.
Embark helps foundations raise millions toward their fundraising goals. Some of the foundations we have worked with include the Leukemia Lymphoma Society, American Cancer Society, the Multiple Myeloma Research Fund and many more.
With almost two decades on the slopes of Kilimanjaro Embark has the experience and expertise it takes to run these programs safely, seamlessly and, most importantly, memorably: we do Kilimanjaro like no other outfitter out there and you won’t regret or forget your experience.
