Project Kilimanjaro followed a team of climbers seeking to ascend the highest mountain on the African continent. Their mission and their bond was life with Type 1 Diabetes. The team was assembled from all across the globe in order to represent diverse communities and they climbed together to send a message of positivity and empowerment to others living with this condition.
No one gets up Mt Kilimanjaro without the tireless efforts of the local guides, support staff and porters. Period. They coordinate logistics to keep the climbers fed and safe. No ascent of this mountain can be celebrated without recognizing the role of local experts giving their efforts toward the cause.
Special thanks to World Diabetes Tour who organized this expedition with the support of Sanofi-Aventis.
