Power to Climb 2010 Mt. Kilimanjaro Expedition
  Kurt Ellingson 12:00 AM
This past month Elevate Me! donated some of our bars to the Power To Climb 2010 Mt. Kilimanjaro Expedition. We were very happy they chose to take our bar with them on this incredible journey:


Hope your 2010 is off to a fabulous start! We're back safely from Africa, and I'm happy to say that our whole team made it to the summit of Kilimanjaro! I'm also happy to say we exceeded our $150k fundraising objective! These funds will directly drive the program expansion of Power To Be and reduce waitlists, helping hundreds more underprivileged youths and families in our communities.

I wanted to thank you for all your support and providing us with the Elevate Me bars. I can say with certainty now that nutrition played a critical role in helping us all get to the summit, and your bars provided us with the nutrients and protein we needed to get to the top! You may also be interested to know the porters seemed to enjoy them as well. With a few bars left over, we decided to donate them to an orphanage in Moshi, which we visited after the climb – the orphanage appreciated the bars very much. This journey was a major life experience for each of us, and we were glad that Elevate Me was there every step of the way.

We'll be sure to keep you posted on our next adventure, and please feel free to continue to check our site for updates
